It was a crapshoot whether it would work at all or not with just about every notebook that came out. I did the usual tech support thing and calmly tried to walk the guy through how to properly plug the cable into the card. I have been doing too much driver and cable swapping. I have been connecting via a null modem cable and using the aic net driver in linx. You bring up another good point, you also have to consider what the cable is anchored to!

Rockwell Allen-Bradley 1784-pcm4/b Dh485 Cable for PCMK Card
I have been connecting via a null modem cable and using the aic net driver in linx. Can you tell I’m a bit partial to Panasonic Toughbooks? Oh, wait a minute. The difference between the A and the B card is the A card will only support data highway at Share this post Link to post Share on other sites.
The other differences are the style of cable connector and the internal design of the card.
If it were me, I would look for a series A with cables on eBay. So I get an angry call from a customer one day.

Miraculously, I’ve been able to carefully dig the chunks out of the card both times, so the card has survived. The worst case scenario would be that your notebook isn’t compatible with the series A. I’ve had mixed results in NT 4.
I’ve got kind of a funny story about PCMKs. I’ve got two PCM4s with obliterated connectors from times that I was lazy and didn’t anchor it down. It was a crapshoot whether it would work at all or not with just about every notebook that came out.

He said he was coming down to the office and demanded to see me and my boss. It is 1784-lcmk/b slow and I have to connect to a panelview the is on a Rio with this SLc.

I have been doing too much driver and 1784-pcmk//b swapping. Also what is the difference between the A and B card? The series B is a bit “CardBus” card. We seem to no longer have boxes labelled “Series A” anymore and now have “Series B”. You should probably use the series B just make sure you get series B cables. I was going to add a comment about that little dovetail slide, if noone else did.
