The TTL33-232-1 is a compact, rugged, industrial-grade, port-powered RS232 to 3.3V TTL converter, which can be used to convert RS232 to 3.3V TTL/CMOS compatible levels and vice versa. This industrial RS232 to 3.3V TTL converter operates within a temperature range of -40ºF to 185ºF (-40ºC to 85ºC), and features 600W surge protection and 15kV ESD static protection. The unit is efficiently powered from the RS232 data line, and the full-duplex RS232 to full-duplex TTL conversion eliminates the need of auto-turnaround feature. This RS232 to TTL 3.3V converter also comes with the auto-sensing and self-adjusting features, which automatically adjust baud rate, parity, stop bit and other COM port parameters to the devices that it is connected to. Therefore, it requires no external power, manual settings or software drivers, making the unit a highly reliable and truly plug-and-play device for both commercial and industrial applications.
CommFront's TTL converters were strictly certified by SGS and/or TUV (both are the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories [NRTLs] in North America (approved by OSHA) and the Notified Bodies in the European Union. CommFront's product quality is ensured by our ISO 9001:2008 (Cert No. SG12/04213) quality control system (strictly certified by SGS/UKAS), and we back our high-quality converter products with a 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee and a 5-year replacement warranty.

RS232 Side (Female)
Note: Some software requires handshake line acknowledgements. To satisfy the requirements, our converter's handshake lines are tied together (DCD, DTR, and DSR tied together, and RTS and CTS tied together). Therefore, you don't have to modify your existing software.

TROUBLESHOOTING RS232 TTL 3.3V CONVERTER
- Connect a TTL33-232-1 to your PC's COM port and short TX and RX on the TTL terminal block (as shown above).
- Run 232Analyzer FREE version software on your computer.
- Select "ASCII" for both the Send and Receive data formats. Then send command and/or string such as "CommFront" from the 232Analyzer software. You should receive an echo of the command/string sent ("CommFront"). By performing a simple loopback test like this, you can test both the transmitter and receiver of the converter. This is very helpful when you are in doubt about the performance of your converter.
232Analyzer is an advanced RS232 Serial Protocol Analyzer software that allows you to control, monitor and analyze serial port (RS232 / RS485 / RS422 / TTL, etc.) activities. Not just the data, it also allows you to monitor or change RS-232's line states: RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, DCD, and RI.
