Redpark Product Development announced today that it is now shipping the Serial+Power Adapter for iPhone and iPad. The adapter connects an iPad or iPhone to an RS-232 serial device and power.
“Customers that use iPad in kiosks, factories or labs often need to connect iPad to a serial device for an extended period of time”, explained Redpark president Mike Ridenhour. “This makes it challenging to keep the iPad charged.”
The Serial+Power Adapter addresses that challenge. It provides a simple and reliable way to connect to a serial device and power at the same time.The Adapter is designed for use with all iOS devices that have a Lightning connector.
It connects to the iPad or iPhone using a standard Lightning to USB cable. A 12V (19.2W) power adapter is included with each Serial+Power Adapter. The Adapter is compatible with apps that have been built with Redpark’s RSC MGR SDK.
The Serial+Power Adapter (part# L4-SERP) has an MSRP of $99 and is available today.
