If you are setting up or servicing a Woodward L-Series throttle body or process control, often found on industrial engines and generators, you need to be able to connect the throttle body inline to a personal computer of laptop.
The Woodward part number for this is 8923-1061. This cable is custom built to allow a direct USB connection to a laptop or personal computer instead of the typical RS-232 9 pin cable (which most computers no longer have).
With this cable you can run the Woodward software and adjust the parameters in the Woodward controller, as well as monitor operation and diagnose issues. You can adjust the set RPM that your generator/engine operates at, etc.
The woodward software is free to download as are the drivers for this cable.
(Windows 95,98,XP,ME,7 are supported but 8 and 10 are not currently). Computers running Windows 8 and 10 will experience issues with this cable.
