Kettler ergometers are connected with computer through serial port (usually older models) or through USB port. Choose what type of connection has your ergometer.

  • Serial port

Information: If you don’t know what interface has your device take a look at the back side of its control panel. The port is usually located there.

Information: You will need a cable specified further. If you have bought a box version of VirtualTraining (previously UniVET System), required cable is included in the package (except serial cable). Online version package contains only software license. Accessories has to be bougth additionally. All types of cables needed are available in our e-shop.

KETTLER - Serial port

If your computer has a serial port you need just ordinary serial cable - COM (picture 1). Connect serial ports of computer and ergometer by the cable. Connection of your device with computer is done.

If your computer doesn‘t have a serial port you need serial cable converting USB to serial port (COM RS-232), see picture 2. Before buying a USB-COM reduction check out if the package contains drivers for your operating system. We recommend reduction Prolific. The reduction is usually available in shops with electronics. First install drivers of USB-COM reduction. Installation CD (including installation instructions) is usually included in the package. Alternatively you can use installation files from UniVET System websites here. If the cable is too short use extension cables. Then connect cable to your computer and ergometer. New virtual COM port should be automatically created after connection (if possible connect your computer to internet in this moment, operating system will attempt to find proper drivers automatically).

Connection of KETTLER device via USB port

To make a connection you need just USB cable A-B (see picture 1) (no more than 3 metres long, longer versions evinces instability). At first install USB cable driver to your computer. Installation of the driver is optional part of UniVET System installation. In case you haven’t installed the driver during UniVET installation you can acquire a separate installation on UniVET System websites here „Driver for integrated USB-COM reduction in KETTLER devices“. New virtual COM port should be automatically created after installation and connecting a cable to ergometer and computer (if possible connect your computer to internet in this moment, operating system will attempt to find proper drivers automatically).
