Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

Home / Hardware - USB to 4-Pin Din


For DriveWire users, Scott Adams (likely not the Dilbert Scott Adams or the adventure Scott Adams) contributes parts he has found for making a USB to 4-Pin DIN cable that works with DriveWire:

The parts number is FTDI USB-RS232-WE-1800-BT_5.0 and a 4-pin DIN plug, solderable.

https://www.amazon.com/FTDI-USB-RS232-WE-1800-BT-5-0-Cable-RS232-Serial/dp/B01HI9CXG4

To connect this the FTDI cable wires yellow, orange, and black are used. Yellow is connected to the DIN pin 4, orange is connected to DIN pin 2, and black is connected to DIN pin 3.

I have tested this in Linux and Windows and it works fine to 115,200 kpbs.
