HP-48 HP-IL connection
Message #1 Posted by Jose Ernesto (Brasil) on 26 May 2002, 10:21 a.m.

Can anyone tell me how to use HP-IL or some other means but the IR link to connect a HP-41 to a HP-48G+ and what kind of material that connection will be able to handle ?

Thanks

Do you know the specs for the HP-IL? Otherwise it's not possible without hacking.

There were HPIL-to-RS232C converters made at one time. Getting one of those is probably your best bet. The problem is they are hard to come by and would likely be expensive on ebay. You could probably send any type of data you wanted over but it would probably require some parsing on the 48 side.
