Connects devices to test and measurement systems using RS232 and RS485 serial ports.
The serial cable supports either the RS232 or RS485 serial protocol, and some models support both. You can use serial cables to connect and control GPIB devices, LCD/keypad displays, touchscreens, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), bar code scanners, and external I/O from a PXI or CompactRIO system. When using a serial cable with a CompactRIO or PXI module, you can select a standard DB-9 connector or the right-angle connector to save space with your system design. Serial cables for use with GPIB devices include serial conversion cables and null-modem cables.
