This 6ft cable has a DB9 female connector on one end and a DB9 male connector on the other, and is considered a "Full Handshake" null modem cable. Superior molded cables with foil-shielding offer maximum EMI/RFI protection. Gold-plated connectors and contacts provide superior conductivity. Tripp Lite warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for life.
