USB To RS232



USB To RS232 refers to the conversion of a USB port for use with serial devices, using a USB to Serial Port Adapter/Converter which is a device used to connect a serial modem, barcode scanner, PDA or any other device with a serial sync to an available USB port on a host computer. This is a cost-effective measure, that saves the cost of having to upgrade serial peripheral devices for USB compliance.
