The USB/Serial Converter is used to connect the serial port of the older ScienceWorkshop Interfaces to the USB port of the computer.
USB to serial adapters produced by other companies rely on constantly changing drivers that may or may not work well with a computer. PASCO's USB/Serial Converter is specifically designed for use with the 300 (discontinued), 500 and 750 (discontinued) Interfaces.
Not only is the USB/Serial Converter easy to use, it boosts the performance of the 500 Interface significantly:
This USB/Serial Converter does require the use of DataStudio, version 1.7 or higher or its replacement, PASCO Capstone software.
