    I am trying to find a cable that will allow me to connect to my SLC5 RS232 plug to a usb on my laptop but I have not had any luck. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Thank you!!!

    Hi,

    You need a 1747-CP3 cable and a usb to serial converter.

    Thanks

    Just to add, there are plenty of after-market RS232 and usb to serial converters available on places like Amazon. You can purchase the official ones from your local AB rep, however, expect to pay several hundred dollars. I’ve had good success with the following from Amazon at a fraction of the cost:

    1747-CP3: https://amzn.to/30Hxyff – RS232 cable

    Usb-to-Serial: https://amzn.to/3Gcr5tk – this has latest chipset for Windows 10 compatibility.
