    Anyone know where I can get one?

    I was told Belkin makes one (part # 9402) but I called them and they say that they don't carry them :confused:

    Thanks,

    RS232 refers to the standard, not the connector. Are you looking for a DB9 or DB25 connector? I have some lying around that I would send you for the cost of shipping if you are unable to find one for a reasonable price.

    Thanks for the replies.

    For all who care, I work in a plastic injection molding factory and bought a device that hooks up a machine to the network to control and monitor it. The output on the box is a serial cable and I need to find an adapter to put it on the network.


    I'll gladly take one or two if you have them.

    The cable has a female DB9 that I need to convert to RJ-45. I have a DB9 to DB25 converter, so I'll probably take whatever you have.

    Drop me a line.

    Thanks,

    A serial connection does not convert to ethernet standard quite so easily. Do you have a link to info about the device you are trying to add to the network? You'll likely need something like this.

    I'll have to look for a web link to it. We have machines that blend our raw material before it goes into the molding machines and one of the guys here bought this device and software to be able to monitor and control it from a PC.

    It's just a black box with 2 serial connections on it. One goes to the machine and the other to a PC. The problem is that the machine is in the middle of the factory and he supposedly bought it since they said it can be adapted to a network.

    Like I said above, they told me to get the Belkin part I listed above, but no one has it.

    I'll find out and get back to you.
