8 port USB to serial adapters
Sealevel Systems has announced two additions to the popular SeaLINK USB to serial product line, the SeaLINK+8/232.RJ and the SeaLINK+8.VC. Offering eight independent serial ports, SeaLINK+8 devices are the perfect way to connect RS-232 and RS-485 peripherals such as barcode scanners, serial displays, and data acquisition modules to any USB port.The
SeaLINK+8 products are housed in durable plastic enclosures and include a high-retention USB type “B” connector that prevents accidental disconnection of the USB cable. Both models are USB bus powered, so no external power supply is needed. For conveniently powering serial peripherals, ordering options allow connecting an external power source via a DC jack on the rear of the unit. The supplied power is fused and connected to pin 5 on each of the eight RJ45 connectors.
Each SeaLINK+8 product ships with Sealevel Systems’ SeaCOM™ full suite of Windows drivers. Also included is WinSSD, a full-featured application providing powerful testing and diagnostic capabilities. Use WinSSD for BERT (Bit Error Rate Testing), throughput monitoring, loopback tests, and transmit test pattern messages. In addition to Windows drivers and utilities, SeaCOM™ includes drivers, utilities, and application notes to simplify installations in DOS, QNX, and LINUX.
