...always glad to help a fellow ohioian!(sp) I'm from Akron originally! Good luck...I use these connectors weekly and have had great success with them. Make certain you order the "boot" or cover too....

List price on those are about 20 dollars per connection with the cord cap boot. You will only need 4 of these with the G540. A little pricey, but well worth the convenience factor. (plus, easily reusable)

Sean, the db9 connectors sound like a good christmas present idea from the wife. I jury rigged some old db9 cable I had by cutting off the female ends and using terminal blocks for connections. Ex-Akron, want to trade locations? I'm from Barberton originally now living in Norton. Right now it's 3 degrees with a -15 wind chill . My CNC is in the basement and like me it gets cranky in the cold weather. I need to really let it warm up before I ramp up the speed.

Very nice and at less than $11 US for a set of four, they are much less expensive than the BTX option. Had I known.... Thanks Gerald
