I saw this on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GridConnect-Serial-Ethernet-Adaptor-/140343319213

Would this work for Vectrix programming? It's like 1/4 the price of a shielded CAN-USB cable.

Re: CAN Cables...

No, this has nothing to do with Canbus, just the same manufacturer.

Re: CAN Cables...

Got it, thanks. It's just weird... I can not for the life of me figure out why a single cable is $325 USD. Unless it has a TV in it, does my grad school work for me, or can beat the last level of Pac-man it's hard to wrap my mind around.

It probably has something to do with it being the only one that works

kinda results in a monopoly

the mark up must be pretty huge
