Before the advent of printers with USB connections, the dominant standard was IEEE 1284, aka the "parallel printer interface". If you have a computer and printer with this interface, you can depend on Monoprice to stock the cables you will need to connect them!
This parallel printer cable provides the Type B "Centronics" CN36 male connector on each end. The cable has 36 conducting wires and is wired straight through, with all pins connected to the correspond pin on the other side. The connector heads are molded onto the cable and have metal clip receptacles for securing them to the printer or other female connector.
