FTDI Chip USB Serial Adapter
The FTDI Chip USB Serial Adapter ads an RS-232 serial port to any PC.  Since many soaring instruments need to connect to a PC for data transfer (waypoints, airspace, flight logs, etc.), and new PCs don't have serial ports, this little device is a great accessory.  It plugs into a USB port on the PC. A DB-9m connector is available for connection to your soaring devices.

Cable Length: 10 feet (3 m)

Tips

  • First you must install the drivers for the USB to serial adapter cable on your PC by running the executable file available at:https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM21228_Setup.zip. 
    Download the .zip file to your computer, double-click it to open it and see the file inside. Then double-click on theCDM21228_Setup.exe file that is the only file inside the zip file. It is an executable install program that automatically installs the necessary drivers onto your PC in the correct locations.
  • After you have installed the drivers, connect the USB to serial adapter cable to your PC's USB port.
  • Use the Windows Device Manager to figure out which comm port is used by the USB to serial adapter cable. In the screen capture below it is listed as the "USB Serial Port (COM 13)". The important information is that the cable is using comm port 13. It is likely to use a different port on your computer. Set your soaring on the PC to use the comm port shown in the Device Manager.
