Does anyone know of a source for Super Serial card cables? I have an old card but have lost the cable that has the port on one end and attaches to the card on the the other. Any help appreciated.

Re: SSC Cable

Thanks, speedy. I've been making different cables for the past couple of weeks. I don't know why it didn't occur to me to make one.

Do you know if the connector that fits the card is a standard connector, and if so, where to get one?

Is the above plug the same as this:

It looks like I should be able to cut one connector off and solder on a DB-25.

Re: SSC Cable

Hello Rick,

yes the link to that cable displays usable part....

but pay attention: the brown coated wire is only located at one side to pin 1 !
At the other side the plug was attached wrong side around !

In the picture displayed, only at the left plug the brown strand
is located at the side with the embosed arrow in the plug that
indicates the location of pin 1
.

And recognoize in my picture, i replaced the white strand by the color of light blue
because white color on white background is nearly invisible.

Re: SSC Cable

Thanks. Just bought it. Sorry OP, I was literally just last night trying to re-crimp my broken one and discovered I had crimped it backwards - DUH !!!
I tried to reopen it and it broke apart. My next step was going to be to solder it directly. I may still do as a challenge but I couldn't pass up a solution for $10.

I have ALL the Parts to make some of these.. About half of my SSCs are missing this cable, so it seemed reasonable to order extra parts, ( for future SSC Purchases ).

Re: SSC Cable

Hello Mark,

so at least the drawing is of use for some guys here....
besides... one of he problems of that parts from ebay:
most of them have been pulled of the card, because they are rusted and inoperatable....
nowadays it´s more safe to make a new one...
all parts are availiable at electronic suppliers "round the corber" or from internet....
cost of the parts together less than 10 bucks...
so happy soldering....

Re: SSC Cable

I got the cables today. After looking at them, I thought I can get 2 from each cable shipped. The plugs are reversed relative to each other. It looks like brown is aligned with pin 1 on each connector. After measuring, I don't think there is enough cable. (This isn't the same cable from the link above). Of course, I haven't ordered the d25's yet.
