This USB to serial converter turns your computer’s USB port into two DB9 ports capable of connecting RS-422 and RS-485 serial devices, such as modems, handheld scanners and GPS systems. No external power source is needed. Just connect the included USB cable between the U208-002-IND and your computer, and insert the included CD into your computer’s CD drive in order to launch the driver. You’ll be able to configure and share data among point-of-sale equipment and other serial devices. LEDs indicate when serial data is being sent or received.

The U208-002-IND’s serial ports can be set to automatically detect an RS-422 or RS-485 device by adjusting their DIP switch settings. The ports can also be set specifically for use in 4-wire mode.

This USB to RS-485 adapter with built-in FTDI chipset offers COM retention. It automatically reassigns the same COM port values to each port, so when the cable is disconnected or the system is rebooted, no additional configuration is needed. The cable auto-detects and auto-switches RS-422 and RS-485 devices. It also supports RS-485 auto-transceiver turn around with unique featured ATTA hardware.

The wall-mountable USB to serial converter with an industrial-grade steel enclosure offers electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection to ±15kV. It supports serial communications speeds up to one Mbps and USB 2.0 specifications, though it is backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices.
