Care Electronics Printer Interface

The Care Electronics Printer Interface was a serial to parallel printer interface, which included a switch to allow operation at 75,300,600,1200,2400,4800 and 9600 baud.

This was a useful innovation, as (without Minerva and SuperHERMES), both of the QL's serial ports operate at the same baud rate, meaning that you could not easily use a printer at the same time as other serial equipment (such as a modem).

The Care Electronics Printer Interface was supplied in a black plastic case with a cable to the QL, and a second cable to the printer.
