This 6 foot custom cable can be used for connecting the RS232 interface on an AIS Receiver or Transponder to an AISWatchMate or other supported devices. The cable has a male DB9 serial connector on one end (to plug into the AIS receiver) and a cable with three bare wires on the other end. The three wires are labeled IN (pin 3), OUT (pin 2) and GND (pin 5) for connection with an AIS RS232-compatible device. We also sell a
DB9 female to female adapter
which allows this cable to be used with a computer as well. NOTE: When used with a computer, the IN lead is connected to the pin 3 OUT and the OUT lead is connected to the pin 2 IN.
Newer versions of this cable no longer have labels and also have different colored wires. Here is the color coding for both the older and newer versions of this cable:

Hi Is this the right cable to connect my Navico NAIS-300 AIS transponder with termination identity:RS232: OUT(-), Gnd and + ? I want to connect it to my mac with open cpn. Looking forward to hear from you. Best regard, Lars
This cable will work for an RD232 DB9 connection. If you want a USB connection, the use the same RS232 interface on the NAIS-300 and connect it to the RS232 model of our USB Breakout Cable (https://www.milltechmarine.com/USB-Breakout-Cable_p_220.html) which works great with Macs or PCs.
