Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Give Your Mobile Computer a COM Port Running up to 921 kbps Add a high-speed RS-232 port to your mobile computer with the Socket Serial I/O PC Card or Ruggedized Serial I/O PC Card. Connect to the world of serial devices such as fax/modems, digital cameras, bar code scanners, monitoring and control systems, writers for court reporting, data collection gear, lab equipment, GPS receivers, wireless receivers and transceivers--you name it.

Want to maximize your connectivity with speeds up to 921 kbps? The S-I/O comes with Hi-Speed COM Tools and drivers that allow you to map lower baud rates to higher speeds. Plus, you can quickly identify and change COM port assignments. Baud mapping is easy with a user-friendly visual display. You can even set a custom baud rate to a higher speed such as 230.4, 460.8 or 921.6 kbps.

The card is outfitted with a "ruggedized" 17-inch cable terminating in a male DB-9 connector. The card works with Windows XP; Windows CE for Pocket PC 2000/2002/2003 and HPC 2000; Windows 95 v4.00.950B; Windows 98; and Windows 98 Second Edition.

Socket's High-Integration Serial (HIS) chip lowers chip count to improve reliability and reduce power drain. The cards use only 13 mA on average, compared to 100 mA for other serial PC Cards! Low power consumption means you can operate your mobile computer longer on internal batteries when you're off the beaten path.
