USIFACII is a serial communication card. NC100 transfers data via serial communication. The USIFACII end of the RS232 cable is USB and the NC100 end is the COM socket. in this way, how can I make serial communication between USIFACII and NC100? this way the CPC will work as a workstation. Also, I can connect other devices in theory by serial communication. but how can i do this?

You cannot establish a direct connection since the NC100 uses RS232 and the USIfAC uses a UART ...


You "may" bei able to connect a RS232 Chip (Like the MAX232) onto the USIfAC but I'm not sure If this will work in any way ...

Yes you are right. I paid attention now. No RS232 chip on USIFACII.

As I remember LambdaMikel connected a LambdaSpeak and a NC100. Seems like they both use 5 Volts (but no guarantee, it shall be written somewhere).

Yes, but he used (as I stated above) also a MAX3232 Level Shifter ;)

Ah, yes, I didn't remember that the NC100 was +/-12 Volts.

if i have time i will do an NC100 project using serial port directly. I don't want to tell you what to do before I start. Maybe I can't find the time.
