FAQ ID: 942
Do you have an adapter for the D2-DSCBL and EZ-2CBL cables so that I can use them on port 2 of a DL06, DL250-1, or DL260 instead of on port 1?
I am using DirectSoft32 with the RJ-12 PLC connector cable (D2-DSCBL) and/or I am using an EZ-Text/EZ-Touch panel with the RJ-12 PLC connector (EZ-2CBL) to connect to port 1 of my DL06, DL250-1, or DL260 PLC.
I want to connect to port 2 of these processors, which has a 15-pin high density connector.
In any of the situations listed above, you can use the FA-15HD adapter to connect to port 2 of a DL06, DL250-1, or DL260.
The FA-15HD adapter will work with DirectSoft32 and the D2-DSCBL, or with an EZ-Text or EZ-Touch panel and the EZ-2CBL cable to allow them to connect to port 2 of the DL06, DL250-1, or DL260.
Since port 2 is configurable on these PLCs, you must make sure the protocol and port settings match on both devices.
The FA-15HD adapter can be used with the D2-DSCBL, the EZ-2CBL, or the FA-CABKIT.
The FA-15HD adapter can NOT be used with the DV-1000 or the D2-HPP.
