    Post Hi, how can i communicate AB 1400 PLC and Delta HMI B series using VGA 9 pin?

    Hi, please I wish to understand something, I understand communication for AB 1400 and Delta HMI can be achieved using RS 232 communication cable and wiring the pins according to HMI manual specifications. Now I donít have RS 232 communication cable, but I have VGA 9 pin male and female communication,

    Please any idea on how I can communicate the PLC and HMI using 9 pin VGA male and female?

    Good morning @EPHRAIM,

    I've never seen a VGA cable that wasn't 15 pins.

    That said, PLC to HMI 9 Pin Serial cable is a standard serial cable you can purchase for $5, so why not just use the correct cable, or wire up your own using 9 Pin D Shell connectors which cost pennies?

    Best of luck!
