StarTech 1m USB to Serial Cable/RS232 Adapter

The 1P3FPC-USB-SERIAL 1 Port USB to Serial Adapter lets you add an RS-232 DB9 serial COM port to your laptop or desktop computer, allowing it to control and communicate with a serial peripheral device.


Accessible connectivity:
The USB to RS232 cable is a convenient connectivity solution that bridges the gap between current and legacy technologies. The small footprint, data rate of up to 921.6 kbps, COM retention, and 3 ft (0.91 m) cable length makes it the ideal solution for the IT industry, point of sales (POS), industrial applications, AV, and office setups.

Connect with ease:
This adapter cable allows you to easily add a RS-232 DB9 COM port by connecting it to the commonly found USB Type-A port on your host device. This USB 2.0 converter is compatible with other USB revisions. It supports Windows, macOS, and Linux (including the latest versions) for maximum compatibility.
