A regular conventional serial card will have either a 55 pin or a 68 pin contact header. When shopping for a PCI serial card be aware that the socket will match your computer. Detailed Seller Ratings information is unavailable when there re less than 65 ratings.
5V so regardless of which voltage your computer supplies our card will fit. The difference between an adapter and a converter generally is that an adapter usually only adapts the physical interface of a device to match a different type of physical interface of a different device whereas a converter converts the actual data stream between two devices.

A serial adapter, also referred to as a serial converter is a small electronic device which can convert one type of data signal into a different type of data signal.
Moschip Mcs9845cv driverA serial converter typically converts data between either RS787, RS985, RS977, USB or TCP signals, however some converter designs have other special conversion features. The reason is that most low-cost PCI serial cards are designed with a low-cost processor which has low-cost poorly written drivers, which obviously results in headaches for the user.
Since these ports are PCI based they can be used as if it was standard built-in COM ports. You will however still be able to adjust several port settings in your operating systems device manager, such as baud rate, data bits and in some cases timing.
A USB to serial converter typically can convert USB to either RS787, RS985 or RS977 signals. The serial PCI cards we are selling are compatible with both 8.
Connecting external modems, serial printers, handheld PDAs, mice and trackballs, keypads, serial POS devices, digital cameras and more has never been easier! Therefore we will use the term converter in the following.
8V and 5. This is kind of old fashioned since most newer serial cards are automatically configured to match your serial device.

Some low-cost PCI cards has jumpers which needs to be set in order for you to be able to communicate with a particular device. Even the RS787 standard is an older communication protocol it is still used by many modern devices in both business and consumer markets and is also often used for personal and office devices.
After installing the downloadable drivers the created COM ports will automatically show up in your operating system's Device Manager as two additional ports. Actually many new devices designed today are designed with a RS787 serial port, often because RS787 is a very robust and reliable protocol which is fairly easy for program writes to integrate into their system.
