USB to RS-232C serial adapter cable
This quality USB to RS-232 converter transparently connects serial devices to PC applications via a USB port. It is perfect for the user needing to connect to a serial port-based peripheral from a laptop PC with an available USB port but no serial port. The adapter driver creates a virtual serial port (using the next available COM number).
Applications connect to the virtual COM port as if it were a standard serial port. The USB-serial conversion is completely transparent to the peripheral device.
Note: The required software driver for the PC is included on the accompanying disk.
