You will need to make some minor mods to get the cable talking to your knitting machine. Follow the tutorials to get your knitting cable going
FTDI cables have standard 'inverted' TTL (zero is 3-5V and one is 0v) but the KH930E requires the opposite. Luckily its very easy to fix this by reprogramming the software.
You will need a copy of FTDI MProg (windows only) and your FTDI cable. Plug in the FTDI cable into your windows computer and install the driver that matches your computer best
Please read our detailed tutorial on installing the driver here then come back when the driver is installed
Now download FTDI MProg and run the program
Select Scan… from the menu
The message window should say it found a cable
Now select Read and Parse to read in the cable programming
Click the buttons that say to Invert TX and RX
Here is the wierd thing, you have to Save as… the settings so just save it anywhere
Now you can click the Program button (lightening bolt)
The message window will say it programmed
You're done! Quit Mprog
