USB-to-serial Adapters with Motion Architect

Not all USB-to-serial adapters will work with Motion Architect.

The only USB adapters we have tested that work with all serial communication modes of Motion Architect is the Keyspan USA-19QW and the BAFO BF-800 and BF-810 and Cables Unlimited part number USB-2920. The USB-2920 is available on

Note that these adapters give a 9pin com port output; a null modem crossover cable is still necessary to connect from the adapter to the 6000 series product.

Other USB adapters, such as the Belkin F5U103, are not compatible with Motion Architect.

Be sure to contact your USB adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest driver available for your product. Many incompatibility issues can be resolved by using the latest driver.
