The SeaLINK® 2165-OEM USB 2.0 serial I/O adapter offers an easy way to add 16 multi-interface serial ports to a single USB port in your OEM application. Each serial port is available on a standard DB9M connector and is individually configurable for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485. The electrical interface, echo suppression, line termination, and receive biasing for each serial port is set via convenient on-board DIP-switches. The adapter supports a wide range of standard and non-standard baud rates exceeding 921.6 Kbps on each port.
The 2165-OEM serial adapter includes a high-retention USB Type B connector to help prevent accidental disconnection of the USB cable. On-board status LEDs display serial data activity, the board heartbeat, electrical interface selection and line termination state. The adapter requires 5 VDC external power, via a 2-pin Mini-Fit Jr. header connector on the board, and operates over a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +85C.
Sealevel SeaCOM USB software drivers and utilities make installation and operation easy using Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. After installing the software, simply power the 2165-OEM and connect it to an available USB port. The serial ports are recognized as standard COM ports by the host system enabling compatibility with legacy software.
The adapter is RoHS compliant and meets the requirements of RoHS (2011/65/EU) directive.
