Product Overview

Add an RS232 Serial Port to Your Laptop or Desktop Computer Through USB

The ICUSB232SM3 1m/3ft USB to Serial Adapter Cable lets you connect DB9 RS232 serial devices to your Mac® or PC laptop or desktop computer through an available USB port, as though the computer offered an onboard DB9M connector.


Built-in Coverter Chip

Unlike typical USB to serial converter cables where the conversion takes place at the DB9 end, the StarTech.com ICUSB232SM3 features a converter chip on the USB end. Converting at the USB source overcomes the 15ft. technical limit of USB cables, allowing for a much greater serial DB-9 extension cable (50ft.+ is possible depending on the application) if necessary.

Simple to install and use, this USB to Serial adapter is a cost-effective solution that bridges the compatibility gap between modern computers and legacy serial peripherals.


Suitable Applications

• Perfect for IT Administrators looking to add legacy functionality to newer notebooks, PCs and servers that lack an integrated RS232 port.
• Connect, monitor and control industrial/automotive sensors and equipment.
• Connect bar code scanners, receipt printers and other point of sale devices.


The StarTech.com Advantage

• The converter chip on the USB end of the cable allows extension of the DB9 serial over much greater distances than USB extension.
• Drawing power from the USB bus saves the hassle of carrying an external power adapter for this add-on serial port.
• Extensive list of compatible operating systems makes this device perfect for almost any RS232 application.
• Backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Features
• Supports serial data transfer rates of up to 1 Mbps.
• No external power needed - draws power from the USB connection.
• Thin, lightweight design.
• Compatible with modems, printers, bar code scanners, servers, PDUs, and nearly any serial RS232 equipment.
• Easy to setup and install.
