1 port USB to Serial, RS232 Adapter Description
The USB2-F-1001 provides a simple method of adapting legacy serial devices with RS232 interfaces to modern USB ports. Each USB2-F-1001 adapter contains a small internal electronic circuit board which utilises the FTDI FT232R, mounted inside a rugged plastic enclosure capable of withstanding industrial temperature ranges. The integrated electronics also include RS232 level shifters and TXD/RXD LEDs to provide a visual indication of data traffic through the adapter. The enclosure incorporates a standard USB-B device connector for connection to an upstream host or hub port. RS232-level signals, including modem handshake signals, are available on an industry-standard DE-9P (DB9) connector. The maximum RS232-level data rate is 1 Mbps. The USB2-F-1001 requires USB device drivers, available for free for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms.. Unit is FCC/CE Approved.
