Q:  Can I use a RS232 to USB adapter with a 3.5mm to RS232 communication cable?

A:  Some of the environmental testers and B&K Precision offers (models listed above) use a RS232 to 3.5mm interface adapter for remote communication.  Because this is a specialized adapter, it cannot work in conjunction with a RS232 to USB adapter available in the market, as well as the accessory model USB2RS.

This means in order to successfully communicate with any of the listed models above remotely, users must have a PC that has a serial port for connecting the interface adapter.  A RS232 to USB adapter will not work with these instruments.
