Optically Isolated USB-UART Adapter (USB-B)
Optically isolated USB-UART Adapter for communications between a device using logic level (1.8V to 5V) serial and a computer with a USB port. The adapter is optically isolated. Supports baud rates from 300 baud to 2 Mbaud.
The ZeptoBit Isolated USB-UART Adapter allows communications between a device using logic level (1.8V to 5V) serial communication and a computer with a USB port. The adapter is optically isolated, there is no electrical connection between the connected device and the USB port. Supports baud rates from 300 baud to 2 Mbaud.
This version has a "full size" USB-B connector. The adaptor is also available with a micro-USB connector.
- Supports all common baud rates from 300 baud to 2 Mbaud.
- Works with IO levels from 1.8V to 5V.
- No driver installation required on Windows 10 or on recent Linux versions.
- Avoids ground loops.
- Circuits ground and computer ground does not need to be at the same potential.
- Maintains isolation from mains supply.
- Protects the computers USB port from damage.
- Separates sensitive analog circuits from potentially noisy computer ground.
- Works with devices which can not drive an opto isolator directly.
- Open source hardware: All the documentation needed to repair or modify the adapter is provided including schematic, BOM and design notes. 3D models of the device and 3D printable enclosures are also available.
