USB To Serial Cables

Serial ports are a distinctive type of output port that many computers have already installed. Many newer computers, however, do not come with serial ports, meaning that in order for you to use the serial devices you already own, you will need to add serial ports to your new computer. Serial ports transfer information between the computer and the serial device. They are commonly used to connect devices such as modems, PDAs, printers, cash registers, etc. with one's PC. Because of their utility, it is definitely possible to run out of available serial ports if you are using multiple serial devices.

The solution to this shortage is simply to invest in a USB to serial cable. This simple device serves as an easy adapter, plugging into any USB port, and transforming it into one, two, four, eight, or even sixteen extra serial ports. These cables are generally simple to use; one must simply load the driver, which is included with the cable or adapter, and then plug in the cable, and one's new serial ports should be ready to go.

Byte Runner Technologies has a couple of possible solutions for users looking to gain additional serial ports for their computer. One, two and four-port expansions are of course available (such as Byte Runner's popular PL-4COM); but if you're really looking to expand, the PL-8COM will give you eight new serial outlets, from a single USB port. Automatically compatible with Windows and Macintosh PCs, this USB to serial cable is truly the last word in easy and quick installation.

The PL-8COM requires no additional IRQ, DMA, or I/O port. Each of its ports is individually configurable, meaning that you won't have to have all the connected devices operating under the same parameters. It's this kind of versatility that makes the PL-8COM another one of the excellent computer adapters available here at Byte Runner Technologies.
