USB TC08 with an NT4 PC with only serial

Postby steveo67 » Mon Feb 21, 2005 3:02 pm

For various unavoidable reasons I'd like to use an NT4 PC with the USB version of the TC08. Longer term things will migrate to XP but ideally I only want to buy the USB TC08 to keep a test setup fairly standard

I know NT doesn't support USB but is it feasible to use a Serial to USB converter sitting on one of the COM ports to talk to the USB TC08?

Perhaps there are some USB drivers out there for NT that I don't know about that work?

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately the USB to Serial converters are designed for use the other way round- ie to convert serial to USB.

What I would recommend is using our serial TC-08 which is the predecessor to the USB version and is still available from us at the same price as the USB version. This will then mean you can connect via a COMs port.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
