We recommend using the CBOX method of integrating with the Essilor device. However, your practice can use a direct serial connection. Access CBOX to follow the instructions for the preferred integration method, or continue with the instructions on this page to use a direct serial connection.
Follow the Instructions for RevIntegrator before continuing with these instructions.
The required cable is a null modem cable, D89 female to D89 female. This cable connects the USB-to-Serial port adapter to the Essilor device.
