Features & Benefits
  • The Actisense™ USB to Serial (RS232) cable, provides an external plug'n'play RS232 serial connection for computers, notebooks, laptops, and handheld computing devices that support the USB specification. It comes with a standard D-type 9-pin male connector for the peripherals to plug into, and an attached 35 cm USB cable with a type A plug for connecting to the computer's USB port or USB hub.
  • The USB-1 serial cable provides any USB compliant device with a high quality serial connection at a data transfer rate of over 230 Kbps. It makes the USB interface transparent to the peripherals, allowing easy interface to the USB bus, eliminating the set-up hassle normally associated with traditional serial port connections.
  • The USB-1 serial cable is intelligent too - it can support multiple adapters per PC, and will also remember the exact communication port that each cable was last given by Windows™. This is vital to ensure that all subsequent PC bootups will use the same setup, and communicate correctly with the linked PC software (e.g. Chart-plotter).
  • As a USB specification compliant device, the USB-1 serial cable also supports the energy-saving suspend and resume operations. Full 'handshaking' control is possible for systems that require access to the RTS, CTS and DTR, DSR handshaking control pairs.
  • A data transfer or ‘handshaking’ (orange) LED is built in to the cable housing to offer direct feedback on the status of the data connection.
  • Sealed case design. A very robust case incorporating the RS232 connector protects the compact electronics.
  • Simple Plug'n'Play. Easy Plug'n'Play installation and connection for use with almost all computers, notebooks, and hand held computing devices that support USB. Cleverly remembers the 'Comm Port' number issued when installed, and will use that number every time the computer is started.
  • USB specification. Features full compliance with the standardised USB v1.1 specification.
  • RS232 / PC serial. Fully compliant serial communications (RS232) port. This also includes support for automatic handshaking modes
  • Fast data Baud rate. Capable of data transfer rates over 115k Baud.
  • Remote wake-up. Supports remote wake-up requests and power management control for energy saving operations (suspend and resume).
  • Large transfer buffers. Both receive and transmit channels have fast, 96 byte hardware buffers for continuous high performance data transfers.
  • Wide compatibility. Operates with cellular phones, PDA devices, digital cameras, modems, and even ISDN terminal adapters.
  • Operating System support. Drivers available for Windows® 98, 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP, and Mac's with OS 8.6 and upwards.
  • Transparent operation. Makes the USB interface transparent to serial peripherals, allowing them to easily interface to a computers USB serial port. This eliminates the setup hassle found with traditional serial port connections.
  • Free up resources. Can free up your serial RS232 port for other uses, and does not require the use of a valuable IRQ.
  • Software CD. All required software drivers supplied on a CD.
