There are six different GPIB cables which are made by Keysight. You can see what each of these GPIB cable assemblies are capable of. You will need to find a seller online who sells these to the public such as RS Components which normally also host the Keysight IO libraries. If you are looking for a Keysight 82357B USB to GPIB interface converter then you can also find these where they stock the cables.
The Keysight 82357B USB/GPIB interface converter is and excellent choice for connecting a USB port to a GPIB device. The interface converter made by RS Components has parallel polling capability with a maximum GPIB transfer rate of 1.15 MB/s. The converter also uses the standard USB and IEEE-488 interfaces. The converter is every easy to use and is a high quality product from RS.
The FT232RL USB to Serial Adapter is about a third of the price compared to the FT231X USB to serial adapter and does not have as many options however for a simple environment this will work well enough. Both chips are made by FTDI. There are driver below for MAC Linux as well as all version of Windows. We need to compare the two and see what the difference in price will make and then decide from there as to which one you would really prefer.
The Thunderlinx USB to Serial adapter is most probably the most well known USB to serial adpater that uses the FT231X processor. This USB to Serial adapter converts serial data to USB data and vice versa. There are a few advantages to this newer technology as have been explained below and may be of interest to you if you are in a complex environment.
When we talk about the RS485 we first need to know that is stands for the “Recommended Standard no. 485” and that it is the serial communication standard which was established in 1998. The standard is used in many industrial equipment as the signal can be sent far and can still be sent simultaneously at multiple points. This uses Half duplex communication meaning that it can only send information in one direction at a time.
If you are trying to convert the RS232 signal to another signal such as the RS422 then your will need a RS232 – RS422 converter to achieve this. The XS202 from US Converters LLC is a bi-directional RS232 to RS422 converter which is port powered how you can add additional power if needed such as an external 5VDC power source which needs a 6 pin DB9 Terminal Block Header.
This is the USB driver for the Samsung B310e. You can download the driver below as it is a very small file which is easy to install. The USB driver for the B310e is listed as a Spreadtrum Sci USB 2 Serial driver version 188.8.131.52. This was the last driver which allowed you to connect the mobile phone to your computer. It will work for most people and it is a very common mobile phone in India.
The following USB to Serial devices are all from Prolific and they all use the same USB to serial driver which you can also find on this website. Note that there are UART as well as Serial and Printer chips which they make. You will find this rather easy to understand.Search this website for more Prolific device drivers.
The PL2303TA is a USB to Serial Bridge Controller from Prolific. The chipset provides USB to straight-through RS232 serial connectivity at baud rates up to 128Kbps. This allows you to use a USB port in your computer to a RS232 type devices such as point-of-sale terminals, serial modems as well as industrial equipment.
PL2305 USB to Printer Bridge Controller driver is added below which will take you to the download page as this chipset is from Prolific. This chipset you will find in the USB-C to Parallel Printer Cable adapters. This cable is a bi-directional bridge between the Universal Serial Bus (USB) system and IEEE-1284 parallel port printers.
The PL2303HXD USB to Serial Driver is the same driver from Prolific and you can find the download and installation page listed below. You will note that this is similar to the PL2303RA chipset from Prolific which is used in the StarTech 2 Port USB to RS232 Serial DB9 Adapter Cable. This usb to serial driver is the same on all the Prolific chipsets.
The PL2303RA chipset from Prolific can be found in a number of devices. The most common location for this chipset can be found in the USB to RS232 Bridge Controller which you will find in the StarTech 2 Port USB to RS232 Serial DB9 Adapter Cable. You can find the driver for this cable listed below as the Prolific USB to serial driver on this website.
