This quality cable is a robust USB to 3.5mm jack plug cable, 1.8m long. The USB<>serial adapter wizardry, based on an FTDI converter chip, is a tiny miniature circuit securely moulded right inside the rectangular USB connector. This USB cable is a 5V logic level device, so works far better than a 'serial cable + universal USB-RS232 adapter' combination.

Top Tips!

  • Always use your AXE027 USB cable in the same USB port on your computer. It will then always retain the same 'virtual COM port' number.
  • Always insert the AXE027 USB cable before starting the PICAXE software.
  • On Linux ensure you use the LinAXEpad 'modprobe' button after starting the software.
