Need a TTL-232R-5V-WE? Just cut the connector off this one.

If for any reason there is no Voltage label on the cable, then the above pictures show you how to identify them. The plastic inside the connector housing will be black for 3.3 Volts, and white for 5 Volts.

You can also test the voltage by plugging the unit into a USB port and measuring the voltage between Ground and any data pin.

The TTL-232R uses a FT232RQ device which is housed inside the USB 'A' connector, and is terminated at the end of a 1.8 meter cable with a 0.1" pitch header socket which provided access to transmit (Tx), receive (Rx), RTS#, CTS#, Vcc (5V), and GND.

The TTL-232R is fully RoHS compliant and is supplied loose packed in an anti-static bag. It is FCC and CE approved.

Re: USB/Serial cable for EQMOD/ASCOM software and Skywatcher NEQ6Pro mount

Hi Don All good - thanks! I have successfully used your cable to connect my Win 7 laptop to my Skywatcher EQ6Pro mount.
All I needed to do was replace the 6-way header plug with a DB9 male plug.
I connected the Black lead to DB9 pins 4 & 5, The Orange lead to pin 6 and the Yellow lead to pin 9.
It works perfectly! You may even wish to include that info on the TTL-232R-5V USB converter page?
Thanks and kind regards JOHN COOPER
