A !non-embedded! Falcon 50EX below serial number ____ has 9 pin DEEC download ports. Not the same as a F50…Not the same as a 900…not the same as a F50EX with embedded interface. and no, yo cannot just take the upper cowl off and download directly from the DEEC.
A decade ago, Honeywell was able to provide the 9 – pin adapter . for $1800.00 and 6 months lead. Good luck even getting the part number now.
Here is what we worked out after much trial and tribulation! Thanks Marcus!
CAUTION: pin 1 orientation on the RJ12 end is to the left when the tab is held down. You may have a similar !!!! or !!!! reverse cable end. WIre to the pin positions, not the colors.
Okay I have found a third party app that lets me copy everything from Google drive in one easy step – Astro File Manager – it’s a free app on play store, works brilliantly for this as you can select everything in the drive and simply copy it over to your SD Card.
This app will also work with dropbox and other cloud services.
General Rules for aquiring hardware for linux MINT:
1. Don’t buy bleeding edge new stuff, but hardware that’s already on the market for some time. That increases the chance of the right drivers being present in the kernel of Mint 18. Additional advantage: it saves you a lot of money.
2. Make sure your graphics card is either Intel or Nvidia; avoid AMD and the others.
3. Wireless: Buy Atheros, Intel, Ralink or Realtek instead.don’t buy a Broadcom chipset.
