What part can be used to allow a computer with a USB port to talk with Power Suite?

Powersuite software and the cable kit requires a serial port using a DB9 9-pin connector. Many newer computers do not have serial ports as USB ports have become more common. Therefore, it is necessary to have a converter that can convert a USB port to a serial port. Not all hardware and software systems on PC computers are the same. A specific recommendation can not be made.
If using a laptop computer, consider using the PC docking station if one is available. Most docking stations do have a 9-pin serial port available.
