USB & Serial Connectivity

USB to Serial Converters
For many applications, a PC must connect directly to a number of devices over a serial interface. Moxa's UPort line offers PCs a high-performance, industrial-grade connection to up to 16 serial devices over a single USB port. A wide range of models is available with features including Hi-Speed USB 2.0 operation at 480 Mbps, advanced UARTs for high-end serial performance, COM port mapping, and more. UPort USB-to-serial products are ideal for modern PCs and laptops that need a direct serial connection to industrial devices.
USB to RS-232
Moxa offers reliable communication solutions for USB to RS-232 applications. The advanced UART provides the consistently high data throughput that is required for industrial communication, and advanced serial communication functions are available for a high degree of control
USB to RS-422/485
Moxa offers reliable communication solutions for USB to RS-422/RS-485 applications. The advanced UART provides the consistently high data throughput that is required for industrial communication, and advanced serial communication functions are available for a high degree of control.
USB to RS-232/422/485
For USB-to-serial applications involving a mixture of RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 devices, Moxa offers reliable communication solutions with easily configurable serial interfaces. Each serial port can be set independently for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 operation. The advanced UART provides the consistently high data throughput that is required for industrial communication, and advanced serial communication functions are available for a high degree of control.


USB Hubs
The UPort™ 404 and UPort™ 407 are industrial-grade USB 2.0 hubs that expand 1 USB port into 4 and 7 USB ports, respectively. The hubs are designed to provide true USB 2.0 Hi-Speed 480 Mbps data transmission through each port, even for heavy-load applications. USB-IF certified and fully compliant with the USB Plug & Play specification, the UPort™ 404 and UPort™ 407 provide a full 500 mA of power per port to ensure that your USB devices will function properly

Serial/Ethernet Servers
Moxa's serial-to-Ethernet products are designed to make industrial devices accessible directly from the network. Legacy devices can thus be converted into Ethernet devices that can be monitored and controlled from any network location or even the Internet. Different configurations and features are available for specific applications, including protocol conversion, Real COM drivers, TCP operation modes, and more.
Standard
Industrial Device Servers are designed to make serial devices network-ready in an instant. The small size of the servers makes them ideal for connecting devices such as card readers and payment terminals to an IP-based Ethernet LAN. Use the Industrial Device Servers to give your PC software direct access to serial devices from anywhere on the network.
Secure Series
Moxa's terminal servers offer the specialized functions and security features required when establishing terminal connections to a network. Multiple async devices such as terminals, modems, data switches, mainframe computers, and POS devices, can be connected through the terminal server and made available to network hosts and processes.
Redundant Series (CN Series)
The CN2600 series are 8 and 16-port RS-232/422/485 terminal servers with LAN redundancy and built-in dual-LAN ports to implement a "redundant COM" mode, ensuring zero data loss and smooth operation for your application.
Industrial Series
Industrial Device Servers provide easy and reliable serial-to-Ethernet connectivity for industrial automation applications. The device servers can connect any serial device to an Ethernet network, and to ensure compatibility with network software, they support a variety of port operation modes, including TCP Server, TCP Client, and UDP.
Fieldbus Gateways
Moxa offers a selection of fieldbus gateways that provide seamless coordination between devices designed for different industrial protocols and media, including Modbus TCP/ASCII/RTU, DF1, and Ethernet/IP.
Serial to Wireless
Wireless device servers provide industrial devices such as PLCs or RTUs with a wireless connection to an Ethernet network. Moxa offers a selection of wireless device servers tailored to specific industrial needs, with important features such as TCP operation modes and strong security protocols.
Embedded Modules
Moxa's embedded computing modules provide a programmable platform in a small package that is designed for installation within a device. Industrial devices can be greatly enhanced with multiple connection types and the ability to perform customized computing or processing tasks.


Serial Boards
With twenty-plus years of experience in serial board technology, Moxa is able to offer one of the most comprehensive selections of industrial-grade multiport serial cards in the world. Moxa serial boards are known for their thoughtful design, high reliability, and top performance, and are used to connect any number of serial devices directly to a PC.
