A must-have for PLC programming! 3/21/2020 12:14:17 PM

Pros: Small & lightweight.
VERY flexible; you can use almost any USB/Serial cable you want.
Works with every A-B PLC and RS-485 device I've used it on.
Tripp-Lite stands by their customers.

Cons: Somewhat fragile (I broke the case on one, once).
A bit pricier than Prolific/FTDI-based adapters.
TUSB3410 chipset can be a little "quirky" for some users. YMMV.

Overall Review: I bought this adapter from another E-tailer for the sole purpose of programming the MicroLogix 1400 and pulling programs from legacy hardware such as the SLC 150. It will also work with the SLC 500 over DF-1 protocol on CH0. It's also the only chipset I've found aside from the PL2302HXD that will play nice with DOSBox and not act wonky with the original 1745-PCC adapter. (Modern repros don't have that issue, though. Go figure.)

I won't bore you with the "joy" that is painstakingly back engineering a program written in a DOS utility some 35-40 years ago, but I will tell you that the USA19-HS was recognized as a real serial port at COM1 in DOSBox and that it worked flawlessly at 19.2k baud. These also autoconfigure like a dream in RSLinx and are rock solid when used with RS-485 devices at 9.6k baud.

I somehow managed to pull my adapter free during a job and have it bounce/skitter across a concrete floor several feet away, but the device at least survived when the plastic shell did not. Fortunately, Tripp-Lite was gracious enough to send a replacement to my workplace free of charge. It's nice to know that they'll stand by their commercial/industrial customers like that. ^_^

I'm not going to say that this will work 100% with YOUR PC and/or configuration like the ubiquitous (and, IMO, overhyped) FTDI chipset seems to, but I have never, ever had a problem with the USA19-HS. Drivers install automagically under Windows 10, and I've yet to experience a single lost packet or dropped communication in use (confirmed with Driver Diagnostics in RSLinx). The TUSB3410 also seems to have the fastest throughput in my testing, followed by the PL2303HXD, followed by FTDI.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other. I don't think there's a single "perfect" USB to Serial Adapter, but this comes pretty dang close. Four sta... I mean eggs.
