Overview

The PS22USB PS/2 to USB Keyboard and Mouse Adapter converts a USB keyboard and mouse to PS/2 connections allowing you to connect a newer USB-based keyboard and mouse to legacy systems that only have PS/2 connection ports available.

Newer USB keyboards and mice cannot simply use simple adapters to connect to PS/2 ports, as the signal is of a different nature, so active conversion is required for full functionality.

Supporting plug and play installation with no software or driver requirements, the PS/2-USB adapter offers a cost-effective way to bridge USB peripherals with a PS/2 based computer. For systems that have both PS/2 and USB connections, this compact device can also be used to free up 2 USB ports.

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

  • No drivers or software makes connecting a USB keyboard/mouse via PS/2 truly plug-and-play
  • Compact design with no external power requirements for a simple, all-in-one solution
  • Support for USB combo keyboards/mice ensures compatibility with the most peripheral devices

Applications

  • Connect newer USB peripherals to legacy or specialized computer systems with PS/2 only
  • Use your system's existing PS/2 interfaces to free up USB ports
