I need to get a longer null modem cable (15' or more) for my BCT15X control. Currently I use a standard cable and an adapter. Has anyone found a regular null modem cable that is at least 15' that works with their BCT15X and if so, where can I get one. The last one I bought did not work.

It may be easier to find a longer standard cable and use a null modem adapter. To test the cable, use a meter or continuity tester. Pin 2 connects to Pin 3 both ways and pin 5 ground same each end assuming 9 pin connectors each end.

I buy most of my cables from monoprice.com
They have good cables at good prices.

I got the null modem cables from them and then..........

DB9 extension cables on ebay to make the length I needed.
'DB9 Serial Male-Female Extension RS232 Cable'
(There are also some 15' null modem cables listed there)
