Q&A for you reference:
Q: I have Mini Zed Bull clone but without RJ45 connecter. Does your program work with my zed bull?
A: RJ45 connecter. That’s no problem.
Option1. Right point can be incorporated within MAX232 chip 4 pieces of capacitor.
Connect point 1. GND2. + 5V 3.RxD 4.RxD to Max232 and to RS232 1.RxD 2.TxD 3 GND 4 optional +12V If TPX cloner hardware tape hack.
Option2. Or hack2 no need max232. Zed bull to RS232 connected GND RDX TXD logic0 0Volt Logic1 +5V
Then work TPX cloner, 2 pin build to free RS232 pin.
This 2 version
- Serial comport mode -9V +9V communication
- Direct mode without voltage driver chip
