The USB to multi RS-232/485 interface converter from Black Box makes serial COM port expansion a snap. It enables you to quickly connect RS-232 and/or RS-485 peripherals and serial industrial devices to your PC through a single USB port.With this external standalone or rack mounted box, you can control multiple and varying devices without the need to install serial PCI cards and configure multiple I/O ports in your system. This means lower equipment costs and flexible serial connectivity.What's more, the USB to Multi RS-232/485 interface converter's architecture greatly reduces the overhead on the host computer - this despite its communicating with a number of ports and devices simultaneously. In all, it uses 16 separate USB UARTs.
