Would you please post a drawing of the cable used in the USA and also one of the BI01812A cable?

Thanks,

Hi,

The attached post shows the internal cables.

I believe you have a US MicroMill and a Microturn so the internal cable you have fitted will be: BI01812B

The external cable is a BI01812N This is a standard Null modem cable.

The attached link shows the connections required if you connect a cable directly to the Baldor control card to the PC:

You can buy a cable in the USA from Newark

PRO SIGNAL - PSG90340 - LEAD, MODEM, 9WAY-25WAY D SOCKETS
Newark Part Number: 43T6042 Manufacturer Part No: PSG90340

http://www.newark.com/pro-signal/psg903 ... dp/43T6042

See attached drawing of cable (this would allow connection of 25 way to 9 way or 25 way to 25 Way)
