Helpful Tools for Firmware Update

To start the firmware update procedure a PC with RS-232 interface is needed. Nowadays, most computers do not have a built-in RS-232 interface and this creates a problem.

But, fortunately, you are an ACOM customer and we have a solution. Currently, all computers have a couple of USB ports. So, you need a USB to RS-232 interface converter.

Below are shown two devices (interface converters) tested and approved by ACOM for use with our amplifiers:
  • USB (Type-C connector) to RS-232 (Serial, 9-pin, D-sub male connector), 1 m cable, USB 2.0 standard
    • Producer Digitus, PN: DA-70166. This converter can be ordered from TME (www.tme.eu), PN: DA-70166;
  • USB (Type A connector) to RS-232 (Serial, 9-pin, D-sub male connector), 2 m cable, USB 2.0 standard
    • Producer FTDI, PN: UT232R-200. This converter can be ordered from DigiKey (www.digikey.com), PN: 768-1084-ND, or Mouser (www.mouser.com), PN: 895-UT232R-200, or Farnell (www.farnell.com), PN: 2352013.
