  • Details

  • USB is the connectivity standard for today's PCs, replacing familiar serial ports. However, many commercial and industrial devices still use RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 interfaces. To connect these devices to modern PCs, you need simple and reliable converters.

    The Black Box Mini USB-to-Serial Converter offers USB-to-serial conversion in a space saving package. Simply plug the converter into an available USB port on your computer or USB hub and install the drivers supplied on CD ROM. The serial device will show up as an additional COM port in the Windows Device Manager.
