Q: Can RS232 to USB adapter be used with IT-E131 RS232 communication adapter?
A: Most RS232 to USB adapters available in the market, if pin assignments are for straight through (pin to pin), can be used in conjunction with B&K's IT-E131 TTL to RS232 communication adapter that is specifically designed for use with the applicable models above. Adapters that are not designed with a straight through assignment will not work. B&K Precision recommends the accessory Model USB2RS as it has been tested to work in conjunction with IT-E131 adapter.
Alternatively, users can obtain the IT-E132 TTL to USB adapter in order to connect via a USB port from a computer. This will also simplify the trouble of having too many cables per connection to the computer.
