The site you listed for a RS232 opto in not working...

Just where can I get a "opto" unit?

Is there a schematic for a unit? I can build one from that!

Thanks,

9POP4 is what you need, don't forget you need a power adapter as well

As for a do it yourself circuit, the Suntie is a single TX line, if your into electronics, you could for a few bucks make a simple isolator, most folks find the bb unit worth the price of not going this route

Thanks for the quick reply ;-)
I have 2 units that are about 150' apart. I will need 2 opto's correct?
Do you assign each to different serial port number?
How can you display both at the same time on the screen?

RE: schematic.. I can buy opto's for less than $1 each..is there a schematic for a simple unit?

Thanks,
Chuck Alldrin
