Hi odeshel,

Is the TC-08 connected to the PC directly or via a USB-Serial connection?

It sounds like the device may not be receiving enough power (it requires approx. 7V on pin 7). Please refer to section 3.3 in the user guide http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/tc08-3.pdf.

The other option is to use a USB - serial converter such as the one available from our website:


Drivers can be downloaded from the web page.

I hope this helps.
