If you're responsible for keeping Rockwell Automation devices up and running, and some of them require a serial connection, you can't go wrong with the 9300-USBS.
While it's a little pricey for a USB to Serial converter, it is guaranteed to work with all your Rockwell serial cables, and supports the “auto-configure” feature of RSLinx as well.
So if you do decide to buy a USBS, what will you get in the box? That's what we'll show you in today's article.
