USB To RS232 Convertor


Few older devices use DB9 connectors, but most modern computers use USB port for data transfer. By using a USB to serial adapter, you can continue to use your older serial-enabled device through your new computer's USB port. These cables are also referred to as USB to DB9 or or USB to RS-232 cables.USB to serial adapters are cables that convert the data sent by a serial-enabled device for use by a USB port. The serial end has a DB9 connector, which plugs into the serial device. The USB connector plugs into the computer's USB port or a connected USB hub. The data that are transmitted by the serial device are sent directly to the USB port, where it is passed to software to interpret it.

USB TO RS232

An ISO 9001-2008 Certified Company Order Code RDL/U2U/13/001/V1.0

Working
UART is Universal Asynchronous Receiver and Transmitter Easy and low cost serial interface to connect two computing systems Industry standard asynchronous communication data interfaces More reliable for high-speed serial communication Need less wires than parallel transmission Enable long distance serial communication (RS232=50ft, RS485=4Kft) RS-232 is simple, universal, well understood and supported but it has some serious shortcomings as a data interface. The standards to 256kbps or less and line lengths of 15M (50 ft) or less but today we see high speed ports on our home PC running very high speeds and with high quality cable maxim distance has increased greatly. The rule of thumb for the length a data cable depends on speed of the data, quality of the cable.
