cable RS-232 for Fluke 8808A
I received a response about the RS-232 cable (Request # 239401)
Your answer is probably incorrect. Here is your cable diagram (Request # 239401).
I give a view of the Fluke 8808A behind.
1) pin 1 - the voltage indicated here is + 5V. In your scheme, this contact is not involved in the exchange.
Do I need to apply this voltage from the computer?
If you apply this voltage from the computer, how is this voltage applied: permanently or at certain moments of signal exchange?
2) pins 4, 7 and 8 are completely absent, and they cannot participate in the exchange of signals
as on your circuit.
3) through pin 9 the RI call signal goes, and it does not work in your circuit
For these reasons, your scheme is probably not applicable.
