USB to RS232 Converter - 6ft (CAB-11304)

This is a placeholder topic for “USB to RS232 Converter - 6ft” comments.

There are a lot of devices out there that still communicate over RS232 but we bet your new laptop isn’t one of them. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got you covered. This 6ft converter plugs into your computer’s USB port and provides you with a DB-9 RSR232 connection.

Hi Team,

Does this adapter allow for the latency time in the USB driver to be set? I need a fast connection for a GPS project.

This setting is found under: Device Manager > Open the relevant device > Properties > Port Settings > Advanced > “Latency Time”. (Needs to be set to 1ms)

Thank you!


Hi Liam,

No Worries :slight_smile:

Just checked one of ours and it looks like you can adjust the latency timer from 1 - 255ms.
