This product has posts to attach, need USB to serial 2ft with screws instead?

USB to Serial Diagram

The cable is two feet long. If you are looking for a longer USB to Serial adapter add a USB extension cable or a standard serial cable to your order. If you don't want any attached cable, check out the Plug-in version.

What if I need to use a USB device with a computer that only has serial ports? Then you will need to add a USB 2.0 PCI Card.

The adapter works with 9-pin serial devices. Click here if you need a 25-pin adapter.

If you need a USB to DB9 Female, you can change the serial end with a Female to Female gender changer

Need a manual serial switch?

Get a USB to Serial adapter with standard thumbscrew connectors so you can make sure you have a secure connection that won't accidentally come apart.
