Roy Carter, Celsum Technologies' Managing Director, commented, "The UltraPort USB range is a very robust, well-engineered and easy to install range of interface adapters. Modern computers typically have several USB ports but only one 'traditional' serial COM port. UltraPort USB allows up to eight serial devices to be connected without the need to dismantle the computer to add PCI serial port expansion cards, and without the need for an engineer. The UltraPort USB range is complementary to the serial products which we supply, which include strain gauge conditioning amplifiers and process control instruments."
Typical applications for the UltraPort USB adapters include connecting Electronic Point Of Sale (EPOS) devices, modems, serial printers and data capture devices, and find uses in the office, laboratory, workshop, shops and supermarkets, research, development, process plant, warehouse and industrial automation and many other applications.
