Overview

The UPort® 1400 USB-to-serial converters allow you to connect 4 RS-232 or RS-232/422/485 devices to your laptop or workstation through the USB (Universal Serial Bus) port. The UPort® 1400 converters are compatible with new and legacy serial devices, and are perfect for mobile, instrumentation, and point-of-sale applications.

 

Typical Application—Military Satellite Truck

Before the arrival of mobile satellite technology, military applications relied on terrestrial communication systems to collect data in remote locations and broadcast the signals to a geostationary communications satellite. Satellite trucks, which are commonly used in modern Satellite News Gathering (SNG), allow military command centers to gather intelligence and other data with greater mobility and flexibility than before. Due to the mobile nature of SNG technology, onboard data acquisition equipment needs to be highly portable yet provide seamless and reliable communication. In addition, satellite trucks are outfitted with various degrees of video production and editing gear that need to be readily available and connected at all times. One of our military clients uses Moxa’s UPort® 1450 converter as their solution of choice for reliable device connectivity in their fleet of satellite trucks. The UPort® 1450 has the following features:

  • No data loss with 128-byte FIFO and on-chip flow control for hardware and software 
  • Electrostatic protection and LED indicators designed for critical environments
  • Small form factor and wall-mountable to save space
  • Easy COM port configuration and plug & play capability
  • 3-in-1 RS-232/422/485 support for connecting any serial interface device
