The DIGITUS® USB 2.0 serial adapter is a practical solution for serial connectivity. RS232 serial interfaces are no longer available on new hardware, so the DIGITUS® USB 2.0 serial adapter enables data exchange between a computer USB 2.0 port and peripheral devices with serial interfaces (COM port, RS232). These include, for example, weather stations, sensors, machine control systems, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, PDAs, scanners, modems, ISDN adapters and many other peripheral devices. The USB 2.0 serial adapter is downwardly compatible with USB 1.1 and enables adaptable baud rates of between 75 and 128,000 bits per second. The customizable FTDI chipset is compatible with all common operating systems and also supports power management and remote wake up. A separate power supply is not required, because the device is powered through the USB connection.
