USB-to-Industrial Octal RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 Adapter

USB2-8COM-M CBL is the first of its kind; an eight-port USB to RS-232 serial converter designed in a very slim, compact metal case. Instead of connecting the serial devices directly to the serial connectors on the box, this USB to Octal serial converter provides the option to allow all the eight serial devices to be connected 1 meter away from the converter via an octopus cable.

The USB2-8COM-M CBL is DIN-rail mountable. It can be mounted onto DIN-rails conveniently. The 8-port link cable fans out into eight serial cables. To provide flexible connectivity to external serial devices, the octopus cable is available with either DB9 or DB25 connectors. The octopus cable is tightly and securely attached to the DB62 connector on the box with screws, ensuring that there will be no loose connections to the box.

One of the special features of USB2-8COM-M CBL is that this adapter is designed as power adapter-free. Bus-powered by a host USB port, the USB to 8-Port converter doesn’t need an external power adapter. All the high speed serial ports can deliver at high speeds at 921.6kbps simultaneously. This external 8-port I/O box design provides more flexibility as an out-of-PC box solution, making it suitable for industrial applications. It increases the installation distance of serial ports away from the host PC.

This new USB to 8-port RS-232 converter features 16 LED indicators showing TxD/RxD activity of all ports for easy port monitoring and diagnosis, with an extra LED indicating power and system status. The dimensions of the adapter are 122 x 72 x 30mm or 142 x 72 x 30mm when used with the DIN-rail bracket.


USB-to-Industrial 16-Port RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 Adapter

USB2-16COM-M CBL is designed with the same concept of providing a USB to 16-Port RS-232 converter in a compact, slim and robost metal box. An alternative to our current rack-mountable 16-port RS-232 version USB-16COM-RM, this small DIN- rail mountable RS-232 converter is ideal for industrial applications that requires adding 16 RS-232 ports in a compact form.

The USB2-16COM-M CBL contains two DB62 male connectors on the front of the metal box. The same two pieces of 8-port cable with DB9 (OCT-8-DB9) or DB25 (OCT-8-DB25) connectors, used with USB2-8COM-M CBL and our 8-Port PCI multi-serial board uPCI-800LS, connects up to 16 serial devices to the USB port.

The octopus cable is tightly and securely attached to the DB62 connector on the box with screws, ensuring that there will be no loose connections to the box.

This external 16-port I/O box design provides more flexibility as an out-of-PC box solution, making it suitable for industrial applications. It increases the installation distance of serial ports away from the host PC.

This new USB to 16-port RS-232 converter features 32 LED indicators showing TxD/RxD activity of all ports for easy port monitoring and diagnosis, with an extra LED indicating power and system status. The dimensions of the adapter are 123 x 72 x 52mm or 143 x 72 x 52mm when used with the DIN-rail bracket.
