I suggest *not* buying the SerialIO cable as it seems not to allow receipt of data with the C1/3000. If you get the Sharp cable please reply to this topic so that I know if it works correctly.

If previous is true on voltage when used with C3000 I'll have to concur, on that unless I'm missing the serial /dev/tty??? device complete no response from serialio cable here.
Which is a pity as I got the male version so I could plug the cisco cable in direct.
AND the only reason I went for it was the 'compatible with CE-170TS ' line from SerialIO and the Sharp £50 price tag + shipping in the UK(For a serial cable!!!) now I have to have something that works so will be paying that and more.

If anyone wants to correct or offer dongle advice to a non solder expert I'd be grateful
I got mine from here, not to knock them as they did a splendid service, just hacked off the cable doesn't work with 3000

So I'd guess the question remains - Does the sharp cable work properly?

Anyone?

Please use search - it has been discussed already on this forum.

To answer your questions - it can be "fixed" by adding rs232 transceiver, but you'll need to have some soldering skills and SerialI/O cable was not really made to be easy modifiable. If you can solder, it's probably simpler to make your own cable from spare holsten connector, db9/db25 connector and rs232 transceiver.

As far as Sharp's cable goes, it does work (at least it seems to have proper rs232 levels), but you'd better be using hardware flow control. Otherwise, the serial driver is not forgiving and high latency in sharp's kernel would limit your maximum baud rate.

mingerz,

but why don't you use our service ?
Without a customer reporting that the cable is not working
properly, we don't know that we have to do some more
testing here.
And if it doesn't work, we will exchange it to an original
CE-170TS.
Please give us a chance to show some service smile.gif
Contact us via email and give us some more details what
you're going to do so we can try to reproduce it.
