timing hardware suppliers
One of the most difficult support issues we face is helping our customers
with serial connections to connect timers and scoreboards to their computers.
The usual approach to this is with adapters either via USB ports or PC Card slots.
But, given there are so many manufacturers we often have limited ability to help in diagnosing and helping
with problems. They don't all work as well as you would hope!
In an effort to solve this we recommend the following USB to Serial adapters:
|USB to Serial Adapter by ATEN|
||The ATEN UC232A would be our first recommendation. Works well and as far as
we know it's the only one that works with Windows 8.
The manufacturer's page is here.
Available from a number of suppliers including:
|USB to Serial Adapter by Sewell
||This is an adapters that we sold for a number of years. It is inexpensive and works well but as far as we know
doesn't support Windows 8. Available here
