Hi everybody,
I am searching pin out for making a data cable for a scanner;which I suppose is an in line scanner.
Make : Microtek
Model : ScanMakerPlus E3
Model no. : MRS-600 E3
it has three ports....
"PORT A" 25 PIN MALE
"PRINTER" 25 PIN FEMALE
NO NAME 15 PIN FEMALE ( 8 PIN + 7 PIN )
* HOW TO CONNECT IT ?
* WHAT KIND OF CABLE WILL BE NEEDED ?
* SERIAL OR PARALLEL ?
I can solder and make cable if I get the pin data of the connectors.
I guess I will require 25 pin male to 25 pin female cable but I am not sure & also that data is not available.
THANKS.
Prash.

Hello Prash, thanks for joining the discussions at the Computer Interfacing Forums!

I have searched in my available documentation, and as far as I have found the MRS-600 E3 was originally a scanner for the Macintosh, connected with a single ended SCSI cable. The 25 pins port labeled A is not a parallel or RS232 port as you thought, but a SCSI.

So unless you have a SCSI adapter fit in your computer, there is not much chance you will get the scanner up and running.

Connect the power to the back of the scanner.
Plug the power cord into a wall outlet or power source.
Turn the scanner on. The green light on the front of the will start flashing, and after a few seconds, will remain on solid.
