TOPDOC PLC-2 Application
Our custom PLC-2 Attached Mode Cable (Cat No. TD2-CAM) is used with TOPDOC PLC-2 to communicate from a PC to the programming port of an Allen-Bradley PLC-2. The TD2-CAM is 10 feet long and connects to a 9 or 25 pin PC serial RS-232 port. If the PC does not have a true serial port, this USB to serial converter allows you to connect to the PLC-2 from a USB port. This cable connects to the DB9 port on the TD2-CAM Attached Mode Cable.
NOTE: Not all USB to serial converters are compatible with TOPDOC PLC-2. We can only provide support if you use this recommended converter, Cat No TD2-CAMUSB.
One each of the TD2-CAM and TD2-CAMUSB cables are included with TOPDOC PLC-2 (Cat No TD2-FN) and with the TOPDOC PLC-2 Programming Station (Cat No TD2-PS). This item is listed separately for use as a spare/replacement part, or for use with other software than TOPDOC PLC-2.
