Very smooth and easy installation

By courtier

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

I've used a number of USB to serial adapters with my Mac over the years. Each couple of OSX updates seems to break support and require new software and/or drivers. This unit installed easily and worked right away whereas many other ones I have failed to work under the current OS (Yosemite 10.10.2).

Fits the requiement to a T

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

Many electric utility SCADA, relays and test equipment still use serial connections and of course the newer PCs do no have serial ports. This solves the problem with ease.

In our environment, sometimes we run into older machines needing access to newer technology or vice versa. This product was purchase to be used in a scientific lab and we were very happy with the results. Drivers loaded very easily, and communication was established without error.

Cable is only 1.5ft long instead of 5 ft.

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

Customers of the company I work for have numerous legacy devices in the field that have had to convert from RS232 to USB. This is the only converter we support. No other comes close to the trouble free installation/operation of this device.
