Sealevel Systems, represented in Australia by Allied Data Systems , have released the SeaLINK single-port USB to RS-232 serial adapter that utilises Sealevel Systems’ military-grade designs by incorporating a ruggedised, overmoulded enclosure into the new SeaLINK+232-DB9. This enclosure improves reliability in industrial and mobile applications such as GPS navigation systems, barcode readers, signature input devices, serial printers and scales.
The SeaLINK serial port USB appears as a standard COM port to the host computer enabling easy set-up and providing compatibility with legacy software. The SeaLINK+232-DB9 serial adapter features programmable baud rate and data formats with 128-byte transmit and 384-byte receive buffers. The USB serial adapter is compatible with all standard PC baud rates and supports high-speed communication up to 921.6K bps. The SeaLINK+232-DB9 serial adapter is powered by the USB port and status LEDs moulded into the enclosure indicate serial data activity and connection to the host.
All SeaLINK USB serial adapters ship with Sealevel Systems SeaCOM suite of Windows drivers and diagnostic utilities. WinSSD, a full-featured application providing powerful testing and diagnostic capabilities, is also included. The WinSSD application is used for Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT), throughput monitoring, loopback tests, and transmitting test pattern messages.
Standard operating temperature range for SeaLINK adapters is 0 - +70°C, and extended operation (-40 - +85°C) is available. The attached 44 cable is fully shielded to protect the SeaLINK adapters from RF and EMI interference, which are common in mobile and industrial environments.
