Edgeport USB-to-serial converters offer an easy Plug and Play solution for COM port expansion. An external box alternative to PCI cards, Edgeport connects serial devices to a PC or server's USB port, eliminating the need to open the chassis, reconfigure and reboot. Simply plug in the Edgeport and in minutes gain up to 16 serial ports to connect bar-code scanners, printers, or any serial peripheral device.

Edgeport USB-to-serial converters offer instant I/O expansion for peripheral device connectivity. An out-of-the-box (external) alternative to PCI cards, Edgeport makes it easy to add serial, USB or parallel ports to a PC, server or thin client in minutes – without opening the chassis, reconfiguring or rebooting the system.

Designed for mission-critical enterprise applications, Edgeport is available in multiple configurations for maximum flexibility and scalability. Choose from compact form factors for space-prohibitive applications; single port “bump-in-the-cable” solutions for notebook expansion; software-selectable RS-232/422/485 models to connect any type of serial device to one box; metal enclosures for rugged applications; models with galvanic isolated ports for extended electrical safety; and DB-9 or DB-25 connectors to meet cabling requirements.

Feature-rich design, reliability and unmatched operating system support make Edgeport USB-to-serial converters ideal for mission-critical enterprise applications.
