I am using the USB-Serial Converter to connect a touchscreen which uses 9-pin serial for the “mouse” connection. It works fine directly connected.
I am intending to locate the screen remotely, using a VGA-Cat5 extender. I am looking into using a USB-Cat5 extender, but the manufacturer has the following warnings:
When Using with Video over USB Products (Such as web cams and display adapters) - Check with the manufacturer to find out if the video device uses Isochronous USB data transfer. If it does, you will need to use a non-Cat5 USB extender product.
When Using with a Touchscreen Monitor - Confirm with the manufacturer that a USB over Cat5 extender can be used with their touchscreen monitor.
Does the USB-Serial Converter use this transfer mode? Have you worked with any particular extenders before? I’m also looking into KVM extenders which have USB ports for keyboard and mouse, would the USB-Serial converter work through those types of ports?
