Plugging PC link in at the same time as having potentiometers connected to the DSUB pins?

Hi,

I have used a AX500 board and an analogue potentiometer joystick to control a pan tilt camera head. I am now putting the board in a case, and I would like to be able to still plug the board into the computer to adjust it and reprogramme it without taking it out of the case or unplugging the joystick plug that I have made.

Can i just wire the +, - and signal pins into another 15pin DSUB plug and plug the datacable into that?

Thanks,

Pete.

There are no problems extending the connector.

If you just want to allow easy connection to a PC, then you only need to extend the RS232 signals: pin 2, 3 and 5.
