An Ideal solution to connect RS232 9 Pin devices and peripherals to your PC via a USB port. This cable/adapter set is USB 2.0 (High Speed) and and suitable for Win PC and Mac.
The on-board chipset is from FTDI chipset which in or opinion is easier to work with and more reliable than Prolific versions. We base this opinion of the 5 years experience of selling and supporting a range of USB to Serial adapters. Included with the cable is a CD with drivers but you can also download them from the FTDI web site if its easier - see link below
The serial port connections are the standard male type (9 pins not holes) if you need to use this adapter with another device with male connections you will need a gender changing adapter. You can find a suitable adapter here - Gender Changing Adapters.
Drivers available online.. here
The cable is 1.8m long and the Serial Connectors supplied are Male (9 Pin Male) - This is a top quality cable and not to be confused with cheaper options in the market - see feedback below.
