       (CX-Designer).
       We recommend that you use a USB cable with a ferrite core attached to ensure stable communications.
       (Examples: FH-VUAB from OMRON and U2C-BF series (US2-BF[][]BK) from ELECOM as of February 2016)
       Use a standard USB cable to connect the NS series PT to a PictBridge-compatible printer. USB cable type depends
       on the printer.
*2. To connect the NS series PT to NJ series Controller, using a commercially available 10/100-BASE-TX twisted-pair
       cable.
