From 2017 on we have a new version of the data cable K-USB-2. It has the same functions as the old one. The special hardware driver is no longer needed.
You can connect your sound modules USM-HL-2,USM-RC-2 and the speed controller UFR-1230 with this cable to your PC. You only need a USB port for this.
The data cable K-USB-2 has two functions:
Function 1: Live diagnosis
Using the data cable you can monitor simultaneous in your Sound-Teacher the current settings and transmitted data while you are triggering functions. You can check the diagnosis data for example of the status (received values) of your proportional channels, your in- and outputs and your nautic values. This function is very helpful for troubleshooting.
Your USM-HL-2 and USM-RC-2 can also save the diagnosis data on your SD card (without data cable). To use this function you need to activate it in your Sound-Teacher first. You can check the received values/recorded data with the diagnosis function of your Sound-Teacher. However, without data cable you can only check previous values and not the current "live" values.
Function 2: Transfer of configurations and sounds from Sound-Teacher/Drive-Teacher to USM-HL-2, USM-RC-2 and to speed controller UFR-1230.
Using the data cable you can transmit or change sounds and settings of your sound module without removing the SD card. Normally if you want to configure your sound module you need to remove the SD card from your model, insert it in your SD card reader of your PC and save the new setting with the Sound-Teacher. This can be quite impractical if you need to change configurations very often for example when you want to test different settings.
However, transferring sounds with the data cable K-USB-2 might take a few minutes! A sound with a length of 10 seconds takes about 60 seconds until it is transferred. Very long songs and large, new projects are only restrictively recommended to be transferred with the data cable.
