  • Details

    With the BLACK BOX® User-Programmable CAP, you can use just one User-Programmable CAP for any number of single- or multiple-character conversions. Store your programs in the 8 KB nonvolatile RAM, or upload or download them to or from your PC for storage, editing, or further downloading to as many User-Programmable CAPs as you need.

    It's perfect for any application in which you need to change a character or string. Convert the control sequence between your PC and printer when you need to change fonts. Program it to remove control-character sequences inserted into wire-service feeds, such as from API—and more!
