I ordered 2 controllers last week and forgot to order the USB To RS485 Adapter. Are the LOR adapters the same as the ones I can get from my local Electronic Parts Outlet?

Nope. The one from LOR will handle the continous data as others may not.

Hi agree with Mountainwxman,

Extract taken from LORWiki:

I lost my RS485 converter that I got from LOR. Can I just go buy one of those $3.00 kits from the electronics store?
Nope. The SC485 is NOT a DB9-RJ54 serial adaptor! It has a circuit board in it that converts the PC's RS232 electrical interface into a RS485 electrical interface. This is why they cost more than the $3.00.

Thanks for the info, I am getting the Serial port adapter and I don't have one on my machine. I will have to wait a little longer before I can play:{:{
