Alpha USB to RS232 Adapter
Adds a standard 9-pin Serial COM port to a desktop or laptop computer that has a standard USB port.
Software drivers are provided to enable use with Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
Insert the CD in your CD-ROM drive. Connect the USB to RS232 Adapter to one of the USB ports on your computer. Windows XP will detect the new hardware and will automatically install the drivers from the CD. NOTE: If you want to use the USB to RS232 Adapter on any USB port on your computer, then you should repeat the installation process for each USB port.
The installation process creates a new COM port. Use Windows' Device Manager to determine which COM port is assigned. Verify that the baud rate, data format are appropriate for your sign. If you have questions, call Alpha-American Programmable Signs at 1-800-223-4636.
