SL6-USB or Silver Link 6 with usb connection -
This is the same cable
as the SL3-USB, except it also has interactive knitting
available. The SL6-USB or Silver Link 6 actually has two cables. There is a cable to connect DAK to the PE1 directly. You can download into the PE1 easily. You then disconnect the cable and plug in the PE1 into the knitting machine
. The second aspect allows knit from screen. A magnet is positioned on the carriage. The sensor is positioned on the main bed so that the magnet sensor passes very closely to the sensor. The magnet triggers the sensor and when using interactive knitting in DAK, the row advances one row for every pass of the magnet across the sensor.
When using DAK for interactive knitting with the SL6-USB cable, it is recommended that you tell DAK you are using a Brother 940 (even if you have a different machine). This seems to be the best setting for interactive knitting with the sensor/magnet.
