How to interface 25 pin and 15 pin connectors to labview

I have one 25-pin type D RS-232 port and three 15-pin type D connectors that I want to interface to labview. (Total of 4 devices).

 

Can I use the PCI model 8430 board to read these devices? I think this board takes 9-pin inputs, and since my devices are 25 and 15 pin, I was wondering if an adapter can be used to plug them all in, or if I'll need to get a different interface solution?

 

Thanks in advance

Yes you can talk to any RS-232 instrument.  RS-232 is frequently found in RJ-45, 9pin D, 15 pin D, 25 pin D and 26 pin D connectors but they all have the same signals!  Just build or buy a cable that connects the right pins on either end.  Here is a good referance for STANDARD pin-outs.  (Since the RS in RS-232 means Recomended Standard- allways look at the device manuals)
