The MDC-100 communication cable is used with spectrometers using the RS-232 protocol. Typically, these spectrometers work like a GPS, when powered they will broadcast NMEA sentences containing data from the spectrometer.  The MDC-100 cable is for communication only, the spectrometer is powered by other means.
