Actuator Cables

RS-232 interface cable

An RS-232 cable is required for controlling an actuator from a computer serial port.

Description Product No.
RS-232 interface cable I-22697

Multi-drop cables

Multi-drop cables permit a single serial port (RS-232) to control any combination of microelectric actuators (two position and multiposition, any vintage) and universal actuators with the RS232/485 option. These ribbon cables have one female DB9 and 2 to 8 male DB9 connectors, spaced at approximately 6".

Note: An RS-232 interface cable (I-22697, above) is required for each actuator controlled serially.
