IR100M series is compatible with all Centronics-B(36 pins) parallel printers that are compatible with DOS. IR100M series is compatible with most Centronics-B(36 pins) parallel printers that their Microsoft Windows printer driver use LPT port with proper driver. If the printer or multi-function model can not work with Microsoft Windows LPT port or DOS, IR100M series will likely not work. However, some multi-function printer (MFP) models have been tested to work well with IR100M series. Please e-mail for updated printer models.
