Just today researching this device.

I have some old Atari floppy disks that I would love to get imaged into .ATR files on my PC. I have an Atari 800 with an 1050 disk drive. I'm about 95% sure they are single density disks.

This device sounds like the perfect solution.

Anything else I need here? I have a Windows XP system here.

I only have 1 SIO cable (to connect the disk drive). I need a 2nd one right?? Where do I get one?

If you attach the disk drive directly to the PC and use the ProSystem software you will only need the interface and one SIO cable.

PC USB -> USB Cable -> Interface -> SIO Cable -> Disk Drive

This will work fine for making images of your disks since the USB version of the interface does not require the Atari computer to be attached.
