Can I use the OPTO-4 with a USB to serial converter cable?

← Back

Yes, simply connect the OPTO-4 female 9 pin connector to the male 9 pin connector of the USB to Serial Cable. The OPTO-4 will continue to provide isolation between the NMEA 0183 Talker and the PC. The USB to serial converter must support hardware handshaking (this is normally standard) and it must be enabled.
