View Full Version : 9 Pin Connection

05-05-2004, 05:04 AM
We have bought the MC4 digital, witch has a 9 pin connection, for our Suzuki Funny Bike . We would like to connect the ignition to our laptop. On the laptop are just USB connections available. Can we connect the 9 pin cable on a USB converter (serial - usb cable)? Is the software then working because when we start the software these is only the COM3 available. Or does the software only work on a Com port?

Why do MSD use still use a 9 pin serial connection, because this kind of connection will not be used for a long time. It will be replaced by USB or firewire.

I hope you understand my question.
Sorry for my bad Enlisch.

MSD Does not offer an adaptor for your application. However most computer/electronics stores carry such adaptors.
