Contec GP-IB(USB)FL - GPIB Communication Converter for USB2.0

External USB Product - Four RS-232 Compatible Serial Ports with Standard DB9 Connector


Contec's GP-IB(USB)FL is a micro converter that enables GPIB communication simply by connecting to the USB interface of your PC. The connection to each communication control device can be established by using the interface complies with IEEE-488.1 and IEEE-488.2 standards.

  • The converter complies with the USB2.0/USB1.1 standard and so high-speed transfer (480Mbps) is possible. 
  • It can communicat with Machinery, which has communication interface base on 488.2 IEEE - standard at a transfer speed of greatest 1.5Mbyte/sec. It carries FIFO memory of each 2Kbyte for sending and receiving data, and can communicate fast without affecting quantity of data.
  • As well as a basic function of GPIB controller (µPD7210), It also be equipped with an event (SPAS) outbreak function in the serial pole (when slave). The system construction of high freedom degree is possible.
  • Because it is equipped with a high-speed GPIB controller(upwardly compatible with the µPD7210) of the own company development, Stable supply is possible.
  • It attach a diagnostic program as a tool to support the construction of the system. The diagnostic program can be used to check hardware operation (interrupts and I/O addresses) and to perform simple communication tests with connected devices. 
  • This product does not support Windows 64bit version.
