 +====== Adding RS232 Connector to Tiger Controller ======
  
 +This technote will guide you on how to install an RS232 connector to Tiger Controller. ​

 +All Tiger controllers ship with a USB connector, it is configured as a virtual COM port and conducts UART/serial communications with a PC. On request, ASI can provide a traditional Female DB9 RS232 connector as well. This a mirror of the USB com port and not a new UART channel. ​

 +[{{ ::​tiger_rs232_4.jpg?​direct&​400 |Connect the 10-pin header connector to the circled connector on Tiger Comm card}}]

 +[{{ ::​tiger_rs232_5.jpg?​direct&​400 |Relocate any card next to the Tiger comm card}}]
 +
 +This connector plugs into the 10pin header connector on the Tiger Comm card labeled "​RS232"​. So the RS232 connector needs to be situated right next to the Tiger Comm card in the controller case. If a card is already present, relocate it elsewhere in the case, it is not vital which slot position a card occupies. Remove the card by unscrewing the two screws located at the top and bottom of the panel. ​
 +
 +Connect the RS232 to the Tiger comm card, place the panel, and screw it into the case with the two screws on the panel. ​
 +
 +{{ ::​tiger_rs232_6.jpg?​direct&​400 |Controller shown with new RS232 connector installed.}}
 +
 +Install is now complete, and no firmware update is needed. The Tiger controller can now communicate with a PC over an RS232 interface with a DB9 null modem cable at 115200 baud rate.
