I have connected my laptop to a Bonfiglioli drive once. It was a few years ago, I don't recall if it was RS232 or RS485 but I do seem to remember the pinout of the serial cable was somewhat different than standard. You may want to check those two things: protocol and pinout of your converter and drive.

I used this cable attached below ( RJ45 To USB converter ) because i have only one port in the drive and its Ethernet ( RJ45 )

RJ45 doesn't always equal ethernet. It determines the port's physical characteristics.

You need an ASK-USB cable, or find it's properties and buy a 3rd party alternative.
