This is a Cable Adapter that allows a standard (straight) network cable to be used
to connect to a RJ-45 RS232 communication port. Standard CAT 5 cable can be used, which
makes it very easy creating a cable exactly the right length. Simply plug the one end of
the network cable into the RJ-45 RS232 port of your Modtronix device, and the other end
into this adapter. The adapter can then be plugged into a DB-9 male connector (DTE) of
a PC or similar device.
All Modtronix devices with RS232 DB-9 male connectors are DTE devices. A PC is also a DTE
device. This adapter can be used to connect a Modtronix device with RJ-45 RS232 Communication
port to a PC.

This adapter is similar to the DTE Digi Serial adapter 76000697. The Digi adapter however
has some additional signals for DTR, DSR and DCD. Most modern equipment do not use these signals
anymore, and they are not required. Modtronix devices with RJ-45 RS232 ports don't use these
