  • No external power required.
  • Configurable COM port assignment.
  • Wide range of operating system support for Windows® users.
  • Compact, reliable, hot-swappable!

  • Add a high-speed RS-232 serial port to your PC or server using its USB port. The single-port Black Box® USB Director RS-232 makes it easy to connect and disconnect your modems and printers.

    You can use this intelligent USB-to-serial converter in point-of-sale settings, for mobile computing in the field, or any place you require flexible I/O expansion. Hook it up to your bar-code scanners, touch screens, security cameras, PDAs, and other peripherals.

    By converting the USB port on your desktop PC, laptop, or Thin client to a high-speed RS-232 DB9 serial port, the USB Director RS-232 enables you to attach any peripheral that uses a standard serial interface to your PC. It's the economic alternative to installing a serial card in your computer.

    To install the USB Director RS-232, you simply plug the Type A end of the included USB cable into the USB port and the Type B end into the converter. You can make connections without powering down the network or removing the cover of your server or PC. This hot-swappable converter attaches outside the computer chassis and doesn't require a card slot. Plus you don't need to set IRQ jumpers and device address.

    Plus, there's no need to worry about configuring the attached device. The USB Director RS-232 autodetects peripheral speed and connections. And, after connecting a new peripheral to your machine, you don't have to reboot your operating system—the device is plug-and-play!

    Need more COM ports? You can connect up to four of the single-port USB Director RS-232 units to a hub. Or order one of our 2-, 4-, or 8-port USB Director RS-232 models (IC1001A, IC135A, IC1002A). For details, see Related Items or contact our FREE Tech Support.
