Customize Pinouts for DB9 Cable


Most serial device manufacturers provide a DB9 connector to allow you to connect the serial device to a PC serial port.  However, many of these same device manufacturers use a non-standard pinout arrangement and may charge you well over $100 for the cable to connect their serial device to a standard PC serial port.

For $35, the ProAdapter allows you to customize the pinouts so that you can connect your serial device to a standard PC serial port.  The ProAdapter and accessories can be purchased on the USB & RS-232 Cables Store.


ProAdapter Features

  • Does not require you to solder and unsolder wires to customize your connections.

  • Only tool required is a small Phillips screwdriver used to remove the 4 screws to open the case.

  • 5 pre-stripped wires are included for configuring your connection.

  • If you need additional wires, you can use any 22-26 gage solid wire.

  • If you need to change your wiring connections, you can do that in a matter of seconds.

  • Included is ComTestSerial, a Windows serial communications test program that allows you to test the communications with your serial device.
