Optional Serial Interface

As standard the printer came with a parallel port, however an aditional serial option was available, certainly from Integrex for the Colourjet 132.

It was far from a plug in part though, requiring solder connections to the mainboard. There was a space within the printer though to accomodate the board, so it looks like it was always a planned option.

As can be seen below, the serial port was made avilable via a drilled hole near the power switch.
A sticker applied to the printer indicated that the parallel port was not to be used otherwise damage may occur.

Interestingly Canon used the plasic case of the original PJ-1080a as the basis for its experimental BubbleJet printer, the Monochrome BJ-80 in 1985
