|"We did not invent the product, but we made it better"
is a famous quote from BASF and we feel the same with our new RS-232

The balance and scale industry
seems to lag the technology curve so we went searching to give our
customer the products they ask for - a balance with a USB port at a
reasonable price. Many of the balance manufacturers are out of
touch with the times and have their balances designed with a
standard RS-232 port to interface the balance with a PC. The
problem is almost every laptop comes outfitted with a USB port and
not a serial RS-232 port. Those computer gurus savvy enough to
deal with integrating a serial device attached to a PC always needed
to deal with IRQ conflicts. Choose USB and say goodbye to IRQ
and Com port conflicts.
Our RS-232 to USB converter kit
follows the https://www.balances.com/ business philosophy. Deliver the goods the customer wants even
if you need to work outside of the box and find another vendor to
supply the components to make things happen. Of course the
solution also has to incorporate KISS (keep it simple stupid).

the name of the game with Precision Weighing Balances' solution.
|Unfortunately for consumers, not all computers come with a 9 pin serial port. Since USB has emerged, many computers have discontinued providing serial ports for RS232 applications. USB to Serial Adapters allow you to connect a serial device such as an electronic weighing scale, to your computer's USB port.
USB technology is fast and efficient, but also compatible with most computer systems in use today. The USB to serial adapter connects your serial device to a USB port providing you with RS232 capabilities.
USB - Serial Adapters can be used with WinWedge or WinCT RS232 data communications software. If your computer is missing a 9-pin serial port, this is the most inexpensive and simple solution.
Why spend time and money upgrading your computer's hardware to connect RS232 devices, when with our USB to Serial adapter, your digital weighing scale can connect to your computer in minutes? Easy to install device drivers are included with your cables offering simple plug and play installation.

Adapter kit for Sartorius Balances ( part # SARUSB) provides
