Elecraft KXUSB Cable for the KX2
Elecraft offers the KXUSB cable for USB only computers etc. It uses the FTDI chip set.
Before plugging in this cable to any of your computer's USB ports, you may need to install the correct FTDI USB drivers for your computer's operating system. Drivers are available for most Windows, Mac, and Linux OS's. Note that most of the latest Windows 7 operating systems already have the proper drivers for the FTDI chip set and will automatically install them if you just plug the KXUSB cable into a USB port.
FTDI KUSB Drivers (For currently shipping KXUSB cables)
If your computer has a standard serial port, all you will need is our KXSER cable for the KX2.
Most modern computers no longer have serial ports but instead use USB (Universal Serial Bus) ports for connecting to external devices. Elecraft provides the KXUSB cable to connect the KX2 to these computers.
