Moxa UPort 1100 Converters Now Offer Linux Drives For Arm-Based Platforms

USB-to-serial converters, which covert from USB to RS-232/422/485, provide connections to legacy serial devices.
Moxa UPort 1100 USB-to-serial single port converters now offer Linux drivers.

In addition to drivers for Windows, macOS, and WinCE drivers, Moxa UPort 1100 USB-to-serial single port converters now offer Linux drivers for accessing Arm-based platforms, with a Mini-DB9-female-to-terminal-block adapter designed to make wiring faster and easier, and without the need to set card slots, IRQ jumpers, DMA, or device addresses.

UPort 1100 converters are well-suited to serve as bridges for laptops or PCs lacking a serial port to connect to legacy serial devices or sensors. Capable of delivering 921.6 kbps maximum baudrate for faster data transmission, they allow industrial engineers to connect different serial devices in the field or separate interface converters for devices without a standard COM port or DB9 connector. The 2 kV isolation protects PCs and devices against damage from electrical noise, surges and spikes, while LEDs visually indicate USB and TxD/RxD activity.

The UPort 1100 Series converts from USB to RS-232/422/485, are compatible with legacy serial devices, and can be used with mobile, instrumentation and point-of-sale applications, eliminating the configuration issues associated with card solutions.
