Re: PMC-8 Software Beta Testers Needed !! Please Help Out

Jim McKee

One question, two parts.
I purchased the parallax USB-Serial converter.   It comes as a naked pcb with connectors, with no protective shell.  Strain relief on the DB9 where it is soldered to the PCB is a concern. 
1) Is it right to assume that PMC-8 wifi-serial changes are best accomplished  with the parallax adapter?
2) Once PMC-8 is serial mode, will any FTDI USB-serial cable provide reliable two comms with the PMC-8?
