The ADAM-4562 allows PC users to connect a serial device to a system that use a USB interface.

To attach the ADAM-4562 to a PC, you don’t need to open the chassis or power down your PC and instantly accesses one or two extra high-speed RS-232/422/485 ports.

The power is derived from the USB port, so there are no power adapters to deal with. This makes the ADAM-4562 especially suitable for modems, printers, POS systems and industrial control devices.

Compliant with USB V1.1, the ADAM-4562 features several powerful functions such as high-speed 115.2Kbps transmission, support for various operating systems, independent RS-232/422/485 ports and much more.

By simply plugging in a USB Hub, the ADAM-4562 eliminates the configuration issues associated with high-priced, older card solutions.

You only have to install the drivers as there is no need to set cards slots, IRQ addresses, DMA channels, or device addresses. This greatly reduces programming effort for the user.
