Q9200040: My computer does not have serial ports, what can I do ?
There are several ways to solve this problem:
- Use devices with Bluetooth support, like a Trimble RTK receiver and Ohmex BTX sounder;
- Connect devices using Wifi using for instance a Digi1 Serial to Wifi converter;
- Some devices like Odom and CEE echosounder can be connected through Ethernet;
- Buy an USB to serial converter. Please note extra latency is added to incoming data;
- Install a PCI multi port serial board in your desktop PC;
- Insert a PCMCIA multi port serial adapter in your laptop.
