"We did not invent the product, but we made it better" is a famous quote from BASF and we feel the same with our new RS-232 to USB converter kit for the Acculab ALC Balances exclusively found only at Precision Weighing Balances.  Your source for deep discount prices, operator of the world's most informative website at dedicated to balances, scales and weighing accessories and of course your Authorized Acculab Dealer.

The entire line of Acculab ALC balances come standard an RS-232 port to interface the balance with a PC.  The problem is almost every laptop comes outfitted with a USB port and not a serial RS-232 port.  Those computer gurus savvy enough to deal with integrating a serial device attached to a PC always needed to deal with IRQ conflicts.  Choose USB and say goodbye to IRQ and Com port conflicts.

Our RS-232 to USB converter kit follows the business philosophy.  Deliver the goods the customer wants even if you need to work outside of the box and find another vendor to supply the components to make things happen.  Of course the solution also has to incorporate KISS (keep it simple stupid).  Yes - USB is the easiest way to interface a peripheral with a PC.

Some balances on the market offer you the ability to purchase an optional module to providing you the USB interface like the Ohaus Adventurer AV64 but this option costs $150 - OUCH!.  Other models like the Ohaus Adventurer AS64 can't be outfitted with any data port - YES Ohaus designed the Ohaus Adventurer SL lab balances with no ability to have either RS-232 or USB interface.

Our USB to Serial Adapter kit for Acculab ALC Balances (part # ACCUSB) offers you the best of both world at a great price.  If you want to interface the Acculab ALC Lab Balance with a RS-232 serial port you simply disconnect the 1 foot RS-232 to USB cable.  Simple, Easy, Flexible and Low Cost is the name of the game with Precision Weighing Balances' solution.
