    I just bought a Roland PNC 1100. It came with no power cord. Can I just use any universal power cord in these? I want to make sure before I plug this in, I don't want ot do anything to fry it. :) I'm not the electronics expert some of you are...

    You can use a cable from a computer or monitor and its the same cord.

    Maybe the slowest and loudest plotter in the world, but built like a tank. It will serve you well....

    You can also use any parallel:centronics printer:Lport cable, but if you wanted to use the serial cable port, you need a Roland serial cable. I used to have the pin layout of one- it's not the normal straight through setup.

    It's across-over cable, just swap send and receive at one end. Pins 2 and 3 if memory serves.

    NOOOOOOOOOO the PNC-1000 IS NOISIER!!!!HAHAHAHA
    but they are one of the best. faster cutting then the 1000, more down force available.....and was top of the line CAMM PRO built. it was followed by the PNC-960, 950....

    Now if only I could figure out how to stop it from rotating my graphic 90 degrees when I cut.
