The USB2-H-1004 provides a simple method of adapting legacy serial devices with RS232 interfaces to modern USB ports. This is accomplished by incorporating the industry standard FTDI FT4232H Hi-Speed USB-Serial bridge chip.
Each USB2-H-1004 adapter contains a small internal electronic circuit board which utilises the FTDI FT4232H, mounted inside a rugged plastic enclosure capable of withstanding industrial temperature ranges. The integrated electronics also include RS232 level shifters and TXD/RXD LEDs to provide a visual indication of data traffic through the adapter.
Flexible mounting allows theUSB2-H-1004 to be used in a variety of applications, from a portable adapter to accompany a laptop to permanent installations in industrial, commercial and retail locations.
The enclosure incorporates a standard USB-miniB device connector for connection to an upstream host or hub port. RS232-level signals, including modem handshake signals, are available on an industry-standard DE-9P connector. The maximum RS232-level data rate is 1Mbps.
The USB2-H-1004 adapter requires USB device drivers, available free from http://www.easysync-ltd.com, which are used to make the USB2-H-1004 appear as four Virtual COM Ports (VCP). This allows existing serial communications software, such as HyperTerminal, to exchange data through the USB2-H-1004 to four RS232 peripheral devices.
