Moxa’s UPort® products are designed to provide true USB 2.0 Hi-Speed 480 Mbps data transmission through each port, come with LED indicators for easy monitoring, and are even suitable for heavy-load applications. The UPort® product line includes USB-to-serial converters with 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16 independent RS-232, RS-422/485, and RS-232/422/485 serial ports for connecting data acquisition equipment and many other types of serial devices to notebooks and desktop PCs, and USB hubs with 4 or 7 USB ports for expanding the number of built-in USB ports on a host PC. Available Products USB-to-serial converters: UPort® 1000 and UPort® 2000 series USB hubs: UPort® 200 and UPort® 400 series Moxa’s UPort® 200 and UPort® 400 series of USB 2.0 hubs have passed USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum) certification, which verifies that products meet a number of strict electrical requirements for Hi-Speed USB operation designed to the USB 2.0 specifications. This means that the UPort® 200/400 series supports Hi-Speed USB UPort® products allow you to connect serial devices or USB devices to your laptop or workstation through a USB (Universal Serial For many applications, system integrators are moving towards using either serial-to-Ethernet or USB-to-serial products to connect serial devices to a PC. The overall costs of setting up an application is reduced, not only from a short-term hardware investment perspective, but also by reducing costs associated with long-term management and Electrostatic discharge (ESD) could be as severe as having more than 1,000 volts of ESD with a high rise-time (dv/dt) break through the junction layer of protective devices. In order to avoid serious damage, Moxa’s UPort® 1000/2000 series of USB-to-serial products includes models that support some or all of the RS-232/422/485 serial interfaces. The full slate of RS-232 signals (TxD, RxD, DTR, DSR, RTS, CTS, DCD) is supported, and both 2-wire and 4-wire RS-485 Some UPort® models support both bus power and external power through the power adapter. Bus power can be used with laptop and workstation connections that support a 500 mA output for USB 2.0 for up to 480 Mbps USB transmission, is fully compliant with the requirements for interoperability, provides enough power to attached devices, and can transition back to high-speed operation from the suspend state. Bus) port. These plug & play USB solutions are perfect for mobile, instrumentation, and point-of-sale applications. integration. Another big plus to using Moxa’s USB-to-serial solutions is that each product supports a broad range of operating systems. Drivers are available for Windows 2012 x64, Windows XP/2003/ Vista/2008/7/8/8.1/10 x86/x64, Windows 98/ME/2000, WinCE 5.0/6.0, and Linux 2.4.x, 2.6.x, 3.0.x. Moxa’s UPort® 400 series USB hubs provide ESD level 4 (contact 8 kV, air 15 kV) protection, which increases the quality and value of the user’s end-product. can be used. Many of Moxa’s USB-to-serial products use DB9 male connectors for the serial ports, and for industrial applications, the DB9 female to terminal block accessory can be used. In addition, users can select baudrates up to 921.6 kbps and make use of the 128-byte FIFO. devices. An external power adapter can be used if your computer’s USB port does not provide enough amperage to run the UPort®.
