• USB to Serial cable for Horizon & BirDog satellite meters - RJ45 8 pin
This handy cable allows you to program your satellite meter from your computer. Add new satellite profiles and update existing ones.

One end of the cable has an RJ45 (8 pin) plug which connects to the meter. The other end has a USB plug which connects to the PC's USB port. The cable contains a USB to serial converter, so the meter appears as a COM port on the PC. Length approx 1.7m/5ft 6ins (if required, you can add a USB extension cable up to a total of 5m long). This cable is effectively the same as using the serial RS232 cable for your meter with a USB to serial converter, except of course it is a lot neater and more convenient.

Our standard cable uses the SiLabs CP2102 USB to serial chipset.

We also produce a premium version using the FTDI FT232RL chipset (listed separately).

Both work with all current versions of Windows.

For more detailed information please read our USB chipset information page.

Programming software not included. Please ensure you already have the required software for your meter.

Please check that this is the correct cable for your meter before purchase. This cable is suitable for older (non-USB equipped) meters with an 8 pin RJ45 serial port connector, for example
Horizon model HDSM V2.50, HDTM, BirDog model 2.5 and others.
