DB9 to DB9 Mini Tester Scheatic or Plans

Post by kb3ejv » Wed Jul 20, 2005 11:28 am

Anyone have plans for a com port DB9 to DB9 mini tester. I know they make the 25 pin mini testers but I do not have one to take apart to check it out. :)

Why not use the DB25 tester with two DB25/DB9 adaptors? Since you know the wireing of the DB25/DB9, the unused lines will show as open.

Hi kb3ejv,
Do you just want to monitor the DB9 connection, or do want a full breakout box? If you want to have a drawing of a unit I made years ago to monitor the signals on a DB9 connection, drop me your email address and I'll send it to you.<p>TOK ;)
