Working with RS232 Serial to USB Converters

What to look out for...

When choosing an adaptor, make sure that the serial end is male, as pictured. Buy from a reputable company, and ensure that the drivers for your operating system are included, including whether the O/S is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Final Configurations

After installation, check in the Windows Device Manager that it is working correctly and has appeared in the list of COM and LPT Ports. You will need to make a note of the COM Port number that is associated with the cable adaptor so that the InSite RS232 Communications port can be configured correctly.
