The USB-RS232-WE-1800-BT_5.0 cables is a family of USB to RS232 levels serial UART converter cable incorporating FTDI’s FT232RQ USB to serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signalling and protocols. The cables provide a fast, simple way to connect devices with a RS232 level serial UART interface to USB.

Each USB-RS232 cable contains a small internal electronic circuit board, utilising the FT232R, which is encapsulated into the USB connector end of the cable. The integrated electronics also include the RS232 level shifter plus Tx and Rx. LEDs which give a visual indication of traffic on the cable (if transparent USB connector specified). The other end of the cable is bare, tinned wire ended connections by default, but can be customised using different connectors to support various applications. Cables are FCC, CE, RoHS compliant.
