    Default SLC500 PLC communication

    I am trying to get a pick box to work on my new computer. I bought a USB to serial converter but I can't seem to get it to work. IS there somthing different I have to do with the adapter?

    From my understanding its impossible to get a pick box working with a USB to serial port adapter. The voltage I believe is different then a normal serial port. I have tried myself and could not get it to work. I also called the Allen Bradley dealer they said its impossible to. Your best bet is to buy a 1747-UIC I think?? its has a port for the RS485 and a serial port you can use too.
