Anritsu FAQs

What USB to Serial Adapters will work with my Sitemaster?
answer
All the Site Master, Cell Master and Spectrum Master Products (excluding MS2721A) include an RS-232 serial port. Most of the new lap top computers available in today's market do not feature an RS-232 serial port but feature a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port instead. To address this issue, a USB to Serial adapter can be used. It is important to note that the adapter can not be used to communicate with the Handheld Code Loader software and can only be used to communicate with the Anritsu Handheld Software Tools (Version 6.49 or above) to download and upload traces. Most of the USB to Serial adapters available today in the market will work, provided the computer uses an operating system that supports USB interfaces and that Handheld Software Tools (Version 6.49 or above) is used. The following USB to Serial adapters have been evaluated by Anritsu and have been confirmed to work properly: . HP (5184-2172) . Belkin (F5U103) . Xircom (PGSDB9) . Keyspan (USA-19QW) . Delorme (DEL00331) . Tripp Lite (U209-000-R) . Anritsu (551-1691) If an earlier version of Handheld Software Tools is being used, only the Anritsu supplied adapter will work.
