SureServo Pro Configuration Software:

SureServo Pro™ is the configuration software for the SureServo™ drives. With SureServo Pro installed, the personal computer may be directly connected to the servo drive's serial port via the PC's RS-232 serial port. A six-foot configuration cable (SVC-PCCFG-CBL) is available to make the connection between the drive serial port and PC DB-9 serial port simple. A 3-foot cable (SVC-MDCOM-CBL) is available to facilitate connection between the drive serial port and host controllers with an RS-485 multi-drop serial link. This software is offered as a FREE download from the www.automationdirect.com Web site or it is available on CD for a nominal fee.

NOTE: Use our USB-RS232 converter cable in conjunction with the SVC-PCCFG-CBL cable on PCs having only USB ports.

This quality USB to RS-232C serial adapter cable transparently connects serial devices to PC applications via a USB port. It is ideal for the user needing to connect to a serial port-based peripheral from a laptop PC with an available USB port, but no serial port.
The adapter driver creates a virtual serial port (using the next available COM number). Applications connect to the virtual COM port as if it were a standard serial port.
