USB Converters


USB Port Powered (-ID1)  No external power supply is required (USB low power device).
USB Port Powered or Self Powered (-ID2)  USB high power device (> 100mA) that can be powered directly from the USB host or self-powered hub. For operation with a bus-powered hub the converter can be powered from an external 5V supply. The 5V power input is protected from over-voltage and reverse polarity connections.
Transient Voltage Protection   15KV ESD protection on all signal lines.
Electrical Isolation   Optical and transformer isolation technology provide 2000 volts of signal and ground isolation between the computer and the serial interface. Eliminates ground loops that destroy computer ports and reduce serial communications reliability.
USB 2.0 Compatible   USB Specification 2.0 compliant; backward compatible with USB 1.0 and 1.1
WHQL Certified Drivers   Certified drivers are supplied for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows XP and Windows 2000. Drivers for Windows ME, Windows 98SE, MAC OSX and Linux are also available. Contact Dutec for more information.
Virtual COM Port   Windows will install the converter as an additional COM port that is compatible with existing COM Port PC applications.
Direct USB Device Support   Drivers are available that provide an alternative interface solution that does not implement a COM port. A simple, high-level application program interface (API) is used to provide simpler USB-UART connectivity and functionality.
Status LEDs   Status LEDs are provided for transmit, receive and RTS/CTS hardware flow control signals.
Pluggable Terminal Blocks   Industrial rated pluggable terminal blocks for ease of installation or removal. Accepts up to 16 AWG wire.
High Retention USB Connector   A high retention force USB connector ensures a reliable connection.
Stainless Steel Enclosure   A rugged stainless steel enclosure provides protection from harsh environments.
DIN Rail Mounting   DIN Rail mounting accessories available for easy wiring.
USB Cable   A 2 meter A-B cable is included with the converter.
