Micrologix 1200 with RS485 DIN connection

I am trying to connect to a Micrologix PLC that has a 8 pin DIN connection with RS485 protocol.
What cable and converters do I need to make the connection? thank you.

I have just contacted the local representative. Waiting.

RE: Micrologix 1200 with RS485 DIN connection

The Allen Bradley part number is 1761-CBL-PM02, this is a serial cable, if you google search "micrologix programming cable" you will find a number of options in both serial and USB.

This is the one I use frequently,

Hope that helps, Mike L.
