USB to DB9 Serial Converter Cable - 24 Karat Quality USB Converter that allows the consumer to connect serial devices to the USB port. Even though many computers and peripherals have changed the interface to the new USB standard, there are many expensive devices and automated systems which still use the old standard serial interfaces. This GoldX PlusSeries device allows the computer to communicate with those devices when there is not a serial port native on the computer anymore. By having a USB A male connector on one end and a DB 9 serial connector on the other which emulates a serial port that is found on the back of some computers, the communications between the computer and the device is available.
In information technology, Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to connect devices to a host computer. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve plug and play capabilities by allowing hot swapping; that is, by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer or turning off the device. Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices, eliminating the need for an external power supply; and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer-specific device drivers to be installed.
