    I need to know when my pc is sending data to my printer. I have designed this circuit, is it safe to use? Don't want to blow up my pc or printer port.
    It seems to work ok.

    Seems fine. I'd just replace the optocoupler with a regular red LED though.

    The other part of the opto goes to my PLC. It is either blinking or steady on to the plc input.
