IFSYS-8004 USB Serial-IR Adapter
The IFSYS-8004 USB Serial-IR Adapter is intended for applications which
need to transfer raw serial data wirelessly over a serial infrared link. It is
ideal for OEMs, and equipment designers who do not wish to make
significant changes to their legacy serial software, but who now require a
wireless means of transferring data. IFSYS-8004 comes with a USB driver
that appears as a virtual serial port in the host system, allowing existing
legacy serial applications to work with little or no modification. IFSYS-8004
hardware simply encodes the serial data stream into IrDA
infrared pulses for transmission and demodulates incoming infrared pulses
into serial UART data. Data between host and adapter is transferred over
the USB link. The IFSYS-8004 USB Serial-IR Adapter allows equipment
designers to work with raw serial data without having to worry about the
intricacies of a higher level protocol.
Converts “raw” serial data to infrared.
Hardware is IrDA
V1.1 physical layer compliant, with a transmit
range of 1m.
USB low power device. Driver appears as a Microsoft Windows™
virtual COM port.
Ideal for industrial and medical equipment and instrumentation
