USB to Serial
These adapters enable you to add serial ports to your PC Workstation or Embedded System, providing the ability to communicate between USB (Universal Serial Bus) and serial peripherals. The driver adds Windows serial COM-ports via USB connection, the ports are compatible with new Windows OS and legacy RS232 devices. The drivers for Linux are built-in in every current distribution, giving /dev/ttyUSBxx ports. Support for Mac OS is available as well. This plug and play USB solution is perfect for mobile instrumentation and applications requiring many RS232 devices. USB plug and play allows easy serial port expansion that requires no IRQ, DMA or I/O port resources. Users no longer need to power down the system and open the case, saving time and costs. The number of serial ports is limited by the operating system only (max. Com Ports in Windows, max. USB Hubs in Linux). There is no limit in the driver. The devices in the Plus line provide RS232/422/485 serial ports in an easy to configure hardware. Devices with four and more serial ports are configured by an simple-to-use configuration software, or by a DIP switch. All connections (serial, USB, DCin) provide high ESD-protection, and galvanically isolation (2.5kV) on the ISO models. The devices in the ECO line also come with high ESD-protection, and galvanically isolation (2.5kV) on the ISO models. These devices provide RS232 connection for most of industrial applications.
