This is our high quality USB to Serial adapter. It is one of the most reliable, high performance and easy to use USB serial adapters on the market. It is optimized for Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7 32 and 64-bit versions but will of course also work perfectly fine with older versions such as Vista, XP, 2000 and 98.

This USB serial adapter is suitable for most applications, including industrial, commercial and any general office computer device. It is designed with a high performance quality processor chip which makes this serial adapter one of the most reliable and professional adapters on the market. It easily lets you connect any RS232 device directly to your computer's USB port, without experiencing any troubles like computer freeze, IO problems or any other driver problems.

The adapter is powered from your computer's USB port so no additional external power source is needed. The RS232 end is a standard 9-pin D-sub connector for easy connection of all standard serial cables.

After installing the included drivers and connecting the Serial to USB adapter to your computer, it will show up as a virtual serial COM port in Windows Device Manager where you can manage and configure it as if it was a standard built-in serial COM port.

The processor chip in this adapter is the FT232RL from FTDI Semiconductors which is one of the best and most reliable Serial to USB adapter chipsets on the market. The processor is combined with a ZT213LEEA RS232 serial driver from ZyWyn USA, which has proven to work exceptionally well with the FTDI processor. Documentation is available in our download section.
