In order to set up an EtherMeter, you will need a computer equipped with a serial port, terminal emulation software (eg HyperTerminal), and a SCADAmetrics Serial/Setup Cable.

A convenient way to add a serial port to a notebook or desktop computer is with a USB-Serial Adapter.

In my experience, the make/model that provides the best combination of performance and compatibility is the Model# USA-19HS by Keyspan (a division of Tripp-Lite).  The USA-19HS is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers.
