  •    In Stock


Details

The USB-Serial-3 is a rugged, industrial-grade, optically-isolated USB to RS232 / RS485 / RS422 converter, which can be used to convert any standard USB port into a three-wire RS-232 port, a two-wire RS-485 port, or a four-wire RS-422 / RS-485 port and vice versa. This industrial opto-isolated USB to RS232 / RS485 / RS422 converter uses the latest chipset from Silicon Labs and is fully compatible with Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP / Server2003 / 2000 (32-bit), Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista (64-bit), Win CE (5.0, 6.0), Mac OSX, and Linux (2.6x, 2.4.36). It supports multi-drop RS485 / RS422 networks and can be used to communicate with one loop of up to 128 units of RS485 or RS422 devices; when working with RS-485 signals, the CommFront’s auto-turnaround feature eliminates the need for flow control. This USB to RS232 / RS485 / RS422 converter operates within a temperature range of -40ºF to 185ºF (-40ºC to 85ºC), features 600W surge protection, 15kV static protection and 2500V opto-isolation circuitry, which effectively protect your USB devices from ground loops, noise problems, transient surges, remote lightning and spikes. The device comes with a built-in selectable 120-Ohm terminator for system reliability and easy installation. The unit is powered from the USB port and it features data format auto-sensing and self-adjusting; therefore, no DIP switch or jumper settings are required. And thanks to the professional and unique casing design, the product can be mounted directly on a wall, panel or DIN Rail, without a need of using any unsecured DIN-Rail or wall-mount brackets.
