You need to install OS X drivers for your cable. It looks like RT
Systems only offers Windows drivers, so the best you can do is contact
them and and ask if their cable manufacturer also supports OS X. If
they use a common USB chipset like FTDI VCP or Prolific PL2303 you
will be able to download OS X drivers from the manufacturer's website.
