Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just be sure the jack screws are what you want I have the same problem as others where the female jack screws interfere with female jack screws on my mating bulkhead connector. Since they are not screwed in, but peened in place and completely over-molded, I cannot remove them without destroying the housing. So this is just a warning to be sure that the mechanical configuration is exactly what you need or at least something that you can adapt to. Everything else is good. The Windows driver installs fine on Windows 10 and the cable is high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well after modification I bought this cable to go between a Kantronics 3 Plus TNC and my laptop. The D25 end of the cable has lugs that have to be wrestled off before it will fit on the TNC. It was not easy. It would be helpful if the lugs were made to be removed more easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective The cable was used to connect an 8-port gauge input box to a small cpu which only had USB ports. The cable hardware driver is easy to load,and takes only a few seconds to setup on the computer. The cable connected our hardware to CPU without a flaw. The only issue we had with the cable was the threaded tabs on the RS-232 side had to be cut off to allow room to plug into the hardware. Easily taken care of though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for CNC DNC Works well once you know the quirks. Any usb memory drives in use causes the pc to reassign the COM port number. Requiring a software setting to be changed. Got to reboot the pc if auto shutdown occurs, otherwise pc won't load driver. Need to add 96 bytes minimum at end of file, after %, to ensure that the buffer empties into CNC. Far more reliable than the old 9 pin com ports.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked right out of the box I unpacked it, connected it to my Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop left side USB port, let Windows do its thing and then connected the DB25 end to a Sun Microrystems Ultra 10 with a DB25 serial port board... tested with putty and hyperterminal on the Dell laptop and tip on the Sun system. Worked fine for this simple connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised I recently upgraded from Window XP to Windows 7 needed to configure a Cisco switch. My old Belkin adapter didn't work. Drivers were no longer supported. I did a Google search and found CablesToGo. I just installed the software and connected the adapter and everything started working.Very pleased.

Questions & Answers

Is this adapter compatible with Ubuntu?

Is this cable compatible with a USRobotics 56k 3453C Business Courier Modem?

Asked by: Brad
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.

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?

Asked by: Anonymous
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. You can submit a quote at the following link: https://www.cablestogo.com/secure/custom-and-oem/request-a-quote

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.
Asked by: Debbiedoo
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.
