Product Description

For where normal Commodore IEC cables dare not tread, these Y cables solve complex Commodore peripheral cabling problems.  With these Y cables, connection options truly impossible to graph or understand are now within your grasp!

Like their simpler 2 "headed" kin, these cables are constructed with fully shielded 26AWG wiring and DIN6 connectors with over-molded covers.  They come in two awesome variants:

  • 12" (.3m) Male to Male and Female:  Used to connect an expansion port or cassette port-based peripheral to your Commodore and leave a connector open to chain more peripherals.  In a pinch, one can also use this as a Female to Male and Male splitter.
  • 12" (.3m) Male to Dual Female: The classic 'Y' cable.  Turn a single IEC jack into 2!  Amaze your friends!  Never again curse Commodore's decision to provide only 1 IEC jack on a 1525 printer!

Warning: RETRO Innovations is not responsible for messes caused by overuse of 'Y' cables.

Note: While we have a few cables remaining, we are nearly out of this type and have re-ordered.  Lead times are long.  We will try to accommodate requests, but cannot guarantee immediate supply.  Please contact us prior to purchase if you are concerned about fulfillment.

  1. Solves IEC port availability issues! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    This IEC Y-Cable allows me to connect my 1541 drive and my SD2IEC to my C-64, and frees a port on the 1541 to attach my Okimate printer. Now, I can have all of my peripherals attaches at the same time! Also purchased a C2N power board that allows me to provide power to my SD2IEC, but has a pass thru edge connector so I can simultaneously run my C2N Datasette at the same time...thanks, Retro Innovations!

  2. IEC splitter, what can go wrong? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Feb 2018

    There's really nothing that can go wrong. It's sturdy molded plastic (I think it's PVC). Please offer an 8-pin din to phono and S-Video made the same way, I will buy two!

  3. Keeps your uIEC close by 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2018

    I used to run a cable from the end of my IEC chain back to my '64. This cable replaces that need!

  4. Excellent item for 1541U users 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2016

    This cable is perfect for users of 1541U I, II and other floppy emulators that do not have a pass-through IEC port and don't use a device that does constantly. The short length alone makes it at tidy solution.

    Very convenient for hooking up a drive & your SD2IEC to the Commodore. Helps to facilitate data transfer.

  6. Just what I needed! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2013

    great cable that allows you to connect extra devices to your Commodore serial bus when you have more than one with only 1 connector. Excellent quality at a great price.
