RS PRO Female and Male IEEE 488 to Female and Male IEEE 488 Parallel Extension Cable

This high quality parallel extension cables features two IEEE 488 connectors at either end with both male and female genders at each end, allowing daisy chaining to be accomplished. The connectors feature gold flash pins with excellent corrosion resistance and reliability. The connectors are also double shielded, ensuring superior EMI/RFI suppression with minimal interference. The cable is housed in a PVC sheath to further enhance the protection and durability with thumbscrew fittings to ensure a quick and secure attachment to the ports. IEEE 488 cables, also known as GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus) are commonly used to transfer data between multiple devices and is ideal for use with computers and instruments within scientific and engineering applications.

Features and benefits

• IEEE488 cable with double headed male and female connectors for daisy chaining
• Diecast metal connectors for superior EMI/RFI suppression
• IEEE 488 Fully Shielded Cables
• Fully shielded and quality moulded cables
• Twisted pair conductors
• Double shielded (foil and braid + earth wire) screening
• Thumbscrew fittings for quick and secure attachment


IEEE 488 cables are ideal for applications that require a high quality cable to connect devices together, with protection from EMI/RFI interference. IEEE 488 cables often feature double headed connectors at each end with male and female genders, allowing them to be linked for a daisy chain. They are commonly used to connect electronic instruments and devices in scientific and engineering applications due to their robust construction. They are widely used in areas such as:

• Test and measurement
• Instrument control
• Data acquisition


What is GPIB?

GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus) is a general purpose digital interface system used to transfer data between multiple devices. It offers a wide range of benefits including the ability to connect up to 15 devices to one bus with data rates up to 1 Mbps.

What is EMI/RFI?

EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) refers to the level of radio frequency interference generated by an external source. In many applications it is essential that EMI and RFI is eliminated, with IEEE 488 cables being an excellent choice.

Is this suitable for daisy chaining?

Yes, this cable can be used for daisy chaining and linking multiple devices.
