OPT-USB - Optical to USB Adapter

Translates signals between Optical cable and USB.

The OPT-USB adapter translates signals between Optical cable and USB. The converter software emulates a COM port in the PC, so it can be used also as an Optical to RS232 converter. It can be used to control devices using the optical link communication.
OPT-USB indicates current state of communication using the green LED situated next to the USB connector on the right side of the box. The patterns corresponding to individual states are indicated on the back side.
