StarTech Power Cable Adapters for Serial Communications
StarTech power cable adapters are the solution to configuring devices and hardware, unconventional or non-standard pinouts, and multiple devices with conflicting 9- and 25-pin serial and parallel ports. StarTech produces power cable adapters with serial and parallel functionality, adapters for various modular configurations, adapters for USB to serial, adapters for connecting hard drives directly to a computer power supply, adapters for expanding a 9-pin to a 25-pin of like gender, and adapters for gender-changing.
Choose 9- and 25-Pin Options for Basic Hardware Connections
Wouldn't it be sweet if all of your computers had 25-pin male connectors and all of your required hardware and external devices had 25-pin female ports? Your pinouts might read like mama's recipe for pound cake. Luckily there are StarTech power cable adapters for your unique setup. Quality 9-pin and 25-pin straight-through serial and parallel power cable adapters connect and/or extend the reach of existing connections between serial devices. Varying lengths of cables let you adjust your setup according to RS-232 standards. Male-to-female, male-to-male, and female-to-female options fit into any existing pinout.
Improve Serial Communications With 9-Pin to 25-Pin Adapters and Gender-Changers
Some of your computers might only have type D 9-pin male connectors. This puts you at a disadvantage in serial communications requiring at least 22 pins or setups containing computers connected back-to-back. Could it be that the computer gods just have a sense of humor? Either way, 9-pin to 25-pin cable adapters in female-to-female, female-to-male, male-to-female, respectively, solve this problem. Slimline options fit into tight spaces. A gender-changer converts a DB15 female to a DB15 male, which comes in handy when connecting certain older Macintosh monitors, an attachment unit interface or when dealing with various types of sound cards.
Power Cable Adapters for Unique Pinouts and Serial Connections
Plug and play quickly turns into plug and delay when USB adapters and ports are incompatible. StarTech's USB adapter converts a male USB A to a male USB B adapter for plugging into a USB B female port. StarTech also offers an adapter that converts one USB port into a serial adapter cable. Modular adapters convert serial ports into modular ports, such as RJ45, and an assortment of gender combinations allows you to make the best of complex pinouts and limited port types. You can even customize some StarTech modular adapters to create just the right serial connection you need. To meet the power needs of an IDE hard drive, tap into your computer's power supply with a SATA/LP4 power cable adapter. SATA/LP4 splitters divide the power between two SATA connectors and one LP4, in case you have two IDE hard drives. Female-to-female SATA power cable adapter connect 2.5- and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives to motherboards while supporting bandwidth, reducing clutter and supporting airflow in the server case.
