Brainboxes is expanding its PCI Express range with cards that add LPT ports to the range.

The three latest variations are: PX-157 low profile LPT port; PX-146 standard height LPT port; and PX-475 standard height LPT +1 RS232 port.

As LPT ports are no longer built into PCs, these cards will allow the user to include printer connectivity in many industrial and retail applications.

Very few of the latest PCI Express PCs come with the LPT printer port.

The cards provide fully bi-directional standard printer ports (SPP) allowing complete backwards compatibility with a wide range of peripherals.

They also come with the company's customer support package, including lifetime warranty and support.

'One of our roll outs, for a European post office, used the cards to connect to a label and receipt printer in their EPOS system,' said Eamonn Walsh, managing director, Brainboxes.

'Our cards ensure that they can continue to benefit from pervious investments in peripherals that connect to devices with serial and printer ports while using the latest technology of PC platforms,' he added.

The full PCI Express range comprises standard height and low profile versions of one, two, three, four and eight port variants in RS232, and one, two and four port RS422/485; opto isolated versions are also available.

Cards are supplied with an installation CD including manual, Microsoft-signed drivers and utilities.

Brainboxes is a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner and these cards are compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit editions of Windows Server 2008, Vista, XP, Server 2003 and 2000.

This range also comes with Brainboxes' Serial Solutions software.
