PLC communication may require various cables and connections from RS232 serial, to Micro USB, to Cat5e Ethernet. A range of specialized PLC communication cables is available for PLC programming and I/O expansion.
Programming and communication cables - DirectLogic, Do-more and CLICK Series PLCs
Since CPUs provide many different communication port possibilities, it is helpful to know exactly which communications
cable is required. Please refer to the reference tables provided in the catalog or technical specification documents to
determine the requirements for your CPU. Cables available for PLC programming and I/O expansion include:
D0-CBL - 12ft. (3.66m) RS232C shielded networking cable without RTS connections for CLICK,
DL05, D4-450, RJ12 networking ports. Enables direct networking of two PLCs.
D2-DSCBL - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded PC programming cable for DL05, DL06, DL105, DL205,
D3-350, D4-450, Do-more H2 series CPUs, and CLICK CPUs. 9-pin D-shell female connector to an RJ12 6P6C connector.
D2-DSCBL-1 - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded PC programming cable for DL06, D2-250-1 and D2-260
CPUs. 9-pin D-shell female connector to a 15-pin male HD15 connector.
D2-DSCBL-2 - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded pigtail cable for the bottom port of a DL06, D2-250-1
or D2-260 CPU. 15-pin D-shell male SVGA connector to 14 tinned wires.
D3-DSCBL-1 - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded PC programming cable for the D3-340 CPU. 9-pin D-shell
female connector to an RJ11 connector.
D3-DSCBL-2 - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded PC programming cable for the DL330 & DL330P CPUs.
An RS232 Data Communications Unit is also required to use this cable. 9-pin D-shell female connector to 25-pin D-shell male connector. Can also be used to connect the bottom port of a DL405 or D3-350 CPU, or to DL205/DL305/DL405 DCM modules.
D4-DSCBL - 12 ft. (3.66m) RS232 shielded PC programming cable for the 15-pin port on the DL405
CPUs. 9-pin D-shell female connector to 15-pin D-shell male connector. For programming over the DL405 25-pin port, use
D4-HPCBL-1 - DL405 Handheld Program Extension Cable for use with D4-HPP-1 programmer,
D4-HPCBL-2 - DL405 Handheld Program Extension Cable for use with D4-HPP-1 programmer,
D4-CASCBL - DL405 Cassette interface cable for use with D4-HPP-1 programmer
FA-CABKIT - Universal cable kit for all CPUs (with RS232C ports) and personal computers. Comes
with four pre-wired D-Sub to modular adapters, which can connect most RS-232C ports using a single unshielded 7ft. (2.1m)
cable (included). Includes manual with product. NOTE: Does not include 15-pin connector for bottom port of of D2-250 CPU.
USB-RS232 - 6 ft. USB to RS-232C serial adapter cable transparently connects serial devices to
PC applications via a USB port. USB-A male connector to 9-pin D-shell male connector. If needed, drivers can be downloaded
from https://support.automationdirect.com/products/usbrs232.html (choose USB-RS232 adapter driver).
