Overview

The ICUSB232PRO 1 ft USB to RS232 Serial DB9 Adapter Cable with COM Retention offers a professional grade solution for connecting legacy or industrial RS232 serial devices to a laptop or desktop computer through USB - eliminating the expense of upgrading serial peripherals for compatibility.

A time-saving and convenient USB/Serial solution, the adapter retains assigned serial COM port values in nonvolatile memory, allowing the same values to automatically be assigned to the adapter serial port if disconnected and reconnected, or disconnected from one USB port and installed in another.

A versatile connectivity solution that bridges legacy serial peripheral devices with newer USB-capable computers, the USB to Serial adapter offers broad operating system compatibility including Windows®, Linux and Mac OS, for easy integration into mixed environments.

Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • COM port settings are retained for serial devices plugged into different USB ports saving time
  • Easy plug and play installation with our USB Powered adapter - no power outlet required

(5 stars) Works with Surface Pro 3

By:
This is the only adapter we found that actually worked with Windows 10 on a Surface Pro 3. Tech support was great to work with as they answered my questions finding something to work.

(5 stars) Works Great Windows 10

By:
Like all Startech products, it works. I installed the driver, it asks me to reboot, I did (be sure you do) and I plugged it in to my USB port on my HP Spectra x360 and it works. One other mention, the quality. The Startech product looks good, feels sturdy, and made of solid material. I write this review because few companies have great products, even better support, and seem to care like these folks.
