Only later or updated models of the E6000 can accept downloads. If the serial number of the console is lower than 6025980, it will need some chips replacing - contact us for details.
USB or Serial
E6000Links are available with USB connection or the older 9-pin serial connection. If you already have a serial cable and you want to use it with a computer that has only USB ports, you can attach it to a USB port using our USB to serial converter.
The E6000Links - for the Passap / Pfaff E6000
These links all enable downloading of stitch patterns to the console memory. It is not possible to upload from these machines. (For non-electronic Passap & Pfaff machines please see the ScreenLink).
This link enables downloading of stitch patterns and Interactive Knitting.
It has a 9-pin serial connection and is usually supplied with our USB to Serial Converter for use with computers that have only USB ports.

The Serial E6000Link 2
This link has a switch that enables the selection of either downloading or Interactive Knitting. It means that the cable can be kept permanently attached to both the E6000 console and bed. This avoids the need for repeated connection and disconnection of the link, and therefore also avoids wear and tear on the E6000’s sockets. The other links do not have the switch and need to be disconnected after downloading, so even if Interactive Knitting is not required, we recommend using the Serial E6000Link 2. This link has a 9-pin serial connection and is usually ordered with our USB to Serial Converter for use with computers that have only USB ports.
The USB E6000Link 1 may be converted to the USB E6000Link 2 by adding a Magnet Arm.
