Detailed Information

Startech ICUSB232DB25 is a cost-effective solution that bridges the compatibility gap between modern computers and legacy serial peripherals is this high quality USB to RS232 serial adapter cable. The cable is supplied with a B-9 female to DB-25 male adapter^ to allow connection to almost all serial equipment.
