What cables and things do your need to connect your pumps to your computer? Here’s the items you need.

When one or more pumps are connected to your computer, we refer to the interconnecting cabling and USB-RS232 adapter as a pump network.

What parts do you need to build your pump network?

One or More Pumps? Different manufacturers? Different Models?

Study this diagram:

  • If you have a single pump, you only need the parts from the computer to the first pump. CBL-USB232 and a CBL-PC-PUMP-7
  • If you have multiple pumps, you need to buy all the parts up to the first pump and then a CBL-NET-7 Pump-to-Pump Secondary Network Cable for the number of pumps you have minus 1. You already have connected the first pump with the CBL-NET-7.
  • Remember you can mix models and brands of compatible pumps.

Print this diagram for reference whilst you order cables and leave it with your pumps as documentation on how to make your pump network.
