Ethernet Direct Introduces High Quality Yet Cost Effective Industrial Serial & Industrial USB Converters

Taipei, Taiwan, 15 November, 2006 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of Industrial Networking and communication solutions, is offering Retriever Series Serial Converters with high quality but cost effective to convert serial/Ethernet signals without any modification to the connected PC's hardware or software.
The Retriever Series Serial Converter is comprised of 3 models:
RUS-9510A       RS-422/RS-485 Isolated high speed repeater
RUS-9520A RS-232 to RS-422/RS-485 converter with "Autopro"
RUS-9530 USB to RS232/422/485 Module

RUS-9510A and RUS-9520A allow users to overcome the limitations of the RS-232 protocol, including speed, range and networking capabilities, by using different voltage lines for data and control signals. It is equipped with built-in 'AutoPro' function which enables the converter to automatically configure RS-422/485 baud rate without setting external DIP switches.

RUS- 9530 converter is an intelligent, industrial type expansion module that connects to a PC USB port or USB Hub via the Universal Serial Bus (USB) port, providing one High-Speed RS-232/RS-422 or RS-485 jumperless serial port. The RS-232 standard supports full-duplex communication and handshaking signals (such as RTS, CTS) and The RS-485 control is completely transparent to the user and software written for half-duplex COM works without any modification.

In addition to single port Industrial USB to serial converter, some application would require multiple USB ports like 4 serial or 8 serial ports. To meet this requirement, Ethernet Direct also offers:

RUS-414 4-port RS-232 to USB Converter

RUS-814 8-port RS-232 to USB Converter
