If you need to connect a serial cable to a computer that does not have a serial port, then you will need a USB to Serial adapter.
It can be a challenge since there are many different models, types, and manufacturers.
You need to find an adapter and a matching driver. We have tested cables with the FTDI chip (FTDI-FT232RL) and corresponding drivers. We are using the following set up with success:
- A USB/Serial Adapter from UGREEN: USB 2.0 to RS232 DB9 Adapter Cable (FTDI)
- E.g., $13 at Amazon (remember you might need two cables) - the one shown below is with the FTDI-FT232RL chipset.
- PS: please note that UGREEN makes adapters with other chipsets as well so make sure you have the one with the FTDI chipset.
- A Serial cable or a "modem female to female": DB9 null modem female to female slimline data transfer serial port adapter (please ensure you have the null modemversion)
- A driver supporting an FTDI chip
There are several other combinations (driver and processor chip, cables, etc.), but the above should get you started while being reasonably priced.
