I use 6tb & 21t fanuc lathes in work. our old laptop kick the bucket a while back so we bought a new one. The problem is that there is no rs232 socket on the new laptop. I bought a usb to r232 adapter but there seems to be a wiring difference. The laptop can receive info but when i try to send it i get an alarm 001. parity problems.
I am sure the usb adapter is the problem. Is it possible to rewire the main lead in some way or is a special rs232 to usb adapter needed.
Any help is much appreciated.
