Sending Serial Commands to a USB Port

2 posts in this topic

I would like to control a Serial device but it only accepts ps2 plug but it takes in serial commands.

Which is entirley fine, right now I go from USB --> Serial ( COM 1 ) --> Ps2 . It all works but I found a

USB to PS2 cable but it doesn't use Com communication as far as I can see.. Can I send Serial(COM) commands to that usb port and

have it work on the other side ???? Can someone point me in the right direction... ???

PLEASE....

If the usb to ps2 lead is meant to be used for the device then it must use a usb to RS232 driver. Either you need to find that driver or the one you use for your usb to RS232 might work.

If the USB to ps2 lead has no electronics in it then it is for a keyboard or a mouse and it is no use to you for that job.
