These adapters allow you to use a regular Ethernet cable to connect your serial timer to your computer (or USB to Serial Adapter then to the computer). Just find a suitable length Ethernet cable and connect these adapters to it. Having a long cable length gives you much more flexibility in where you can place your computer in relation to your timer. Perfect for your next Cub Scout® Pinewood Derby®, Awana® Grand Prix, Space Derby®, or other similar race.
- One DB9 Male to RJ45 adapter
- One DB9 Female to RJ45 adapter
- Add your own Ethernet cable to make a serial cable of needed length
- Can connect to a USB to Serial Adapter, if your computer doesn't have a serial port
If you don't have your own Ethernet cable, we do offer a Serial Cable Setup - 50ft.
We do also carry a Serial Port Tester that will help you troubleshoot a timer communications issue.
Warning: Don't wait until the last minute to test out your timer with your computer! You don't need your whole track setup in order to do that, just the timer, your computer and the cabling to connect the two. If you do run into a problem, you will then have time to resolve it before your race.
