    I have an old Simconmeter but i don't have any cable to connect it to Simconbase. Someone could post a shot of the pcb with the cable connection and pinlayout so i made one myself?
    Thanks for who can help me.

    Sorry Vito

    We only have a few Frex users and they may not have that info :( Have you tried contacting Frex direct? I have found them helpful in the past.

    Hope you get it sorted :)

    Thanks Brian,
    I have tried to contact Frex but the only information from Mr Shige is the pin layout of the signal (i suppose because he don't specify anything) to Simconbase.
    I don't know how to connect it to the power. I only need a photo of the pcb. :-(

    Hi Vito

    No joy searching, so I have E-mailed Frex (in my official capacity lol) asking for some assistance and customer care :)

    Hi Vito,it just so happens that I have a simconbase some where, I used to have a simconmeter but sold it and was thinking of selling the base but put it away and forgot all about it until I came across this post I'll dig it tomorrow and post some photos if that helps.

    The way they have the board setup now you need to put your photos on a hosting site and put links here to them.

    After you post the photo's to the site, there may even be codes you can copy to put the image inline so that they show up here rather than a link. The code would start off with [img and usually end with /img]

    I put my images up on photobucket and when I hover over the photo's there is a list of codes for BBS, IM etc. I just click in the area that is what I want and it automatically copies the needed text to the clipboard. All I have to do then is paste in a message and voila' images on the post :)
