The UPort™ 1130I USB-to-serial converter is the perfect accessory for laptop computers that do not have serial ports. The UPort™ 1130I features a new fixed-base COM mode, is compatible with new and legacy serial devices, and can be used with mobile, instrumentation, and point-of-sale applications.
The most basic video surveillance setup is a single camera connecteddirectly to a monitor and recording device. However, many businessesrequire video surveillance on a larger scale, which often requires adedicated management system. These management systems are unable to include every possible type of device port, and for this reason, converters are often necessary when attaching different devices. A client that designs video surveillance systems needed USB- to-serial converters to connect devices to the management system. Their system needed to be able to connect to serial devices such as card readers, modems, video cameras, and sensors. Moxa’s UPort® 1110 and UPort® 1150 USB-to-serial converters, which provide 1 RS- 232 or RS-232/422/485 port for connecting devices to a PC without needing to open the computer’s chassis to install a board, fit the bill.
The UPort® 1110/1150 have the following features:
In addition, a special driver allows the UPort® 1110/1150 to remember the original COM port number when the UPort® is unplugged and then re-plugged into a different USB port

Typical Application‚ÄîSurveillance Monitoring System
The most basic video surveillance setup consists of a single camera connected directly to a monitor and recording device. However, many businesses require video surveillance on a larger scale requiring a dedicated management system. Existing management systems often lack device-port versatility, making converters a necessity when connecting different devices. Management systems needing USB-to-serial converters for serial devices such as card readers, modems, video cameras, and sensors, now have a simple solution. Moxa‚Äôs UPort¬Æ 1110/1150 converters provide plug-and-play serial device connectivity without having to install new adapter boards, which usually requires opening of computer/server chassis. Also, a unique driver allows the UPort¬Æ 1110/1150 to retain COM port numbers when they have been unplugged and then reconnected again, even into a new USB port.
