Belkin International, Inc. USB DUAL SERIAL ADAPTER F5U114-MAC

Compatibility List for Serial Devices

The Belkin Dual Serial Adapter is compatible with a great majority of serial printers, graphics tablets, PDA’s, modems and other serial devices. Our main compatibility testing was focused mostly on Apple, HP, and Epson printers, as well as Wacom Tablets, Palm Pilots, and numerous ISDN modems. As of now, we have not tested all the serial devices that are available. However, we are constantly testing and adding new devices to our compatibility list.

The Belkin Dual Serial Adapter does not support Goeport or AppleTalk (LocalTalk) networking.

Product List

The following is a list of products that have been tested for compatibility with our dual serial adapter. If you do not see your specific product it may mean that the device was not tested, or it has not been added to the list yet. Please remember that we are constantly adding support for more products than are already supported.

Devices that are marked with an ‘*’ must be attached to port 1 on the Belkin Dual Serial Adapter. These devices will only work on Macs that do not have built-in serial ports, such as iMacs, blue and white G3’s, G4’s, bronze keyboard, Powerbooks, and iBooks to name a few. These devices are not Comm Toolbox Savvy, which means they do not look for ports besides the Modem and Printer ports. They must use a port that is emulating the Printer port, which is what Port 1 on the Belkin adapter does.
