Product Features

  • Hassle-free way to add multiple serial ports to your PC, laptop, Thin client, or server via a single USB port.

Details

  • Lower cost per port than serial boards.
  • Get high-speed ports supporting speeds of up to 230 kbps.
  • Plug-and-play!
  • Includes USB cable.
  • No external power required.
  • Configurable COM port assignment.

  • All include drivers on CD-ROM and (1) 1-m USB cable.

    Turn your PC's USB port into multiple high-speed RS-232 ports with the BLACK BOX® USB Director RS-232. Ideal for mission-critical applications, this intelligent USB-to-serial converter can be used in point-of-sale settings, for mobile computing in the field, or any place you need flexible I/O expansion!

    Use the USB Director RS-232 with printers, bar-code scanners, touch screens, security cameras, PDAs, and other peripherals. By converting the USB ports on your desktop PC, laptop, or Thin client to high-speed RS-232 DB9 serial ports, the USB Director RS-232 enables you to attach any peripheral that uses a standard serial interface to your PC—without needing a serial card.

    Installation couldn't be easier: no fiddling with PC card slots, IRQ jumpers, or device addresses. Simply plug the Type A end of the included USB cable into the USB port and the Type B end into the converter. Connections can be made without powering down the network or removing the cover of your server or PC. And, because the hot-swappable converter attaches outside the computer chassis and doesn't require a card slot, you can reduce your ongoing management and maintenance.

    The USB Director RS-232 autodetects peripheral speed and connections, so you don't have to worry about configuring different devices. Better yet, you don't have to reboot your operating system after connecting a new peripheral to your machine—the USB Director is plug-and-play! 

    Once the USB Director RS-232 drivers are loaded, the device is recognized by your PC or server automatically. An amber LED signals serial port activity on the converter, and a green LED indicates successful setup of the serial ports and normal device operation.

    The USB Director RS-232 is available with two, four, or eight ports. You can even stack multiple units for additional COM ports (as long as you connect the units through a hub).
