There were 2 types of RS232 communication for Micromills and Microturns

1. The UK ver (Although I believe some US specification Micromills and Microturns were sold in the UK :oops: :oops: :oops: ) had the RS232 cable wiring in the external cable, this was known as a MACHINE LINK CABLE (Pt No 9-25 machine link cable (RS232) BI01812GG)

2. The US version had the RS232 cable wiring in the internal cable of the machine and was connected externally to the PC with a Simple Straight Through Cable i.e. pin to pin
