Acces I/O have made some big improvements to their USB to Serial Converter range.
The USB-232, USB-422, USB-485 and USB-422/485 have been replaced with three functionally equivalent models which have a significantly higher operating temperature and strengthened housing, making them ideally suitable for use in industrial and military environments.
The new USB to serial IND series are rugged, industrial, serial communications adapters designed for use in demanding real-world applications such as transportation, military, embedded control systems, remote data acquisition, mobile, and more. These intelligent modules provides a cost-effective solution for transferring high-speed asynchronous serial data over USB.
These converters can be used in a range of useful applications, such as with Printers, Scales, Transportation, Barcode Readers, Mobile, GPS Devices, Point of Sale and Medical functions. See below for details, or download the product datasheet on the appropriate product page.

Designed for applications where standard patch cables would fail, these exclusive ultra-flexible cable assemblies are rated to 10 million flex-cycles at 1.82" (46.4mm) for continuous motion and automation applications.
The major benefit of using an antenna array over a single Omni directional antenna is that the antenna array provides radiation patterns that a single Omni antenna would not. In most cases, antenna arrays provide greater coverage than a single Omni antenna could.
As our climate becomes more extreme, there is an ever greater need to ensure that your wired and wireless communications equipment can stand up to the elements. If you are thinking about getting stronger protection for your equipment, you may find the following step by step guide useful.
