Recent notebook computers don’t have serial ports, but have USB ports only. How do I connect PLCs, such as FP0, FP1, and FP10SH to edit the programs?

ANSWER
You can use a commercially available RS232C-USB conversion cable. However, Diatrend Corporation has an integrated connector/adapter/cable unit dedicated to USB connection with our FP series PLCs.
