Due to compatibility issues, EF Johnson recommends using a USB to serial adapter and a serial cable (like this one) on some computers.
Unlike most other cables, no RPI (Remote Programming Interface), batteries, AC-adapter or 25-pin adapter is required, this connects directly to PC or laptop.
This cable has a unique proprietary RPI chip built into the connector shell.
