Updated Jan 26, 2018

Hardware

  • Serial Cable

Issue Details

  • The part numbers that I'm looking at are the following
    • Isolated Serial Converter Cable, 10Pos Modular Plug to DB-9, 1 m - PN: 184428-01

    • S8 Serial Cable, 10Pos Modular Plug to DB-9, 1 m (non isolated) - PN: 182845-01

  • I'm looking to buy one of these cables but I don't know the difference

Solution

  • The isolated (184428-01) cable doesn't have the shielding to bridge the two grounds
  • Non-isolated (​182845-01) cable does have shielding to bridge the two grounds
