Philips MX700 connections query #339
I understand it is the MIB RS232 socket on the back of a MX700 patient monitor that is the correct communication port for the VitalB software. We shall be using a laptop to download the software which has a 15-pin RS232 female socket. Will I need a serial conversion lead from the 9 pin RS232 laptop socket to the MIB RS232 on the back of the patient monitor. Is there such a thing?
You need a serial conversion.
Please refer to the intellivue monitor section in the 'Docs/Hardware connection guide' page to make an appropriate cable.
