Download Adapter for Downloadable PAT Testers


Need to download your PAT Testing test results from your downloadable PAT Tester to your PC/Laptop but don’t have a spare serial (RS232) port to connect to?  Then worry no more!  With this special USB to Serial (RS232) download adapter you can download to a USB port easily and quickly!

Firstly, DON’T purchase any cheap USB/Serial adaptor because it probably won’t work!

This adaptor has a special chipset built into the adaptor which allows easy transmission of data from your PAT Tester to your PC.

How does it work?  Simply plug in the USB end of the adapter to your PC then connect the RS232/Serial end into the download lead that was supplied with your PAT Tester (if you don’t have one or have lost your original download lead then contact us to get a replacement).  Then plug in the other end of your download lead to your PAT Tester and you are ready to start transmitting your test data from your PAT Tester to your PC.

Obviously, this download adaptor is NOT designed to be used with PAT Testers that use Bluetooth, Memory Cards or USB sticks or for USB to USB transmission of data.

This FTDI USB to Serial Adapter is also designed for connections to GPS Systems, Monitoring Equippment, PDAs, Digital Cameras, Modems, Data Aquisition Boards, ISDN Terminal Adapters and software that uses Serial Ports.
