I purchased this to allow connection of a RS232 device to a USB port on my computer. The software did not work and the connection did not link. I am not sure if there is a hardware issue as well as this type of device usually has an onboard chip for configuration. Regardless, the cable combo did not work.

      Needed this adapter cable to connect my Laptop running W8 to a Kantronics KPC-3 Plus TNC. Since the adapter cable D25 Connector comes with lugs, had to remove the lugs on the back of the TNC before I could install.

          No cons. Wish list would include having software configure to given com ports, instead of through Windows (Admin permission problem on windows vs. software setups.) Still product did exactly as it was advertised, and my small COM port problem is fixed!

                A:

                Most likely this cable will work with that Modem. You would need a short male to female DB25 cable because the nuts on the adapter will prevent it from directly connecting to the modem.

              Q:

              Does this cable have a Prolific 2303 Chipset contained in the DB25 molded hood which is similar to the DB9 version? If so could it be made longer (Like 5 meters)or with a Molded Micro USB on the end instead of the Standard USB?

                A:

                Yes, we have the Prolific 2303 chipset in the USB/DB25 adapter cable, however, you would need to submit a request for quote to determine if it can be manufactured in a 5 meter length.

              Q:

              Will this work with a HP Design Jet 430 Large-Format Printer? I need a 25 pin male serial interface cable for this printer that will hook up to USB. Bought this at an auction and it didn't come with the cables....I know I can connect with a standard cable, but need USB connection, if at all possible.

                A:

                It appears that HP Design Jet 430 printer requires a null modem cable. So if you have 22429, you would need a DB25 M/F null modem adapter (#02469) or a null modem cable (#03029) to make the proper connection to that printer.
