We develop an application called Energy Station which downloads and analyses electricity consumption data from a Current Cost device and helps people to understand how they use electricity around the home and how they can reduce waste and save money. The Current Cost device connects to the PC using a serial to USB cable. During testing, we found that the Prolific driver was causing bluescreen problems on Windows Vista. We tested several alternatives and found the Serialio.com driver to be the most stable. We recommend the Serialio.com driver for use with Techtoniq Energy Station and…

Our Java application requires communication with embedded devices using a serial connection. We were using the open-source RxTx package but we had stability issues with RxTX. We decided to use SerialPort and our application now works like a charm. Took 30 minutes to replaces RxTx implementation in our code and now everything runs as expected: concurrent access to multiple com ports now works just fine. I love nice little products like SerialPort!
I wanted to take the time to thank you for the wonderful software package you provide. The installation was trivial and it just plain worked. It's a beautiful thing. I wanted to complement your engineers and doc writers for a tremendous job. Great going and keep up the fantastic work! I can't begin to tell you how much time and headache your software will save me.

We have used SerialPort in our disk drive manufacturing facilities since the year 2000 and it has performed without a single error in the manufacturing of over 2 BILLION hard disk drives and counting - year of this report is 2010
I ordered the BlueSnap Bluetooth RS-232 adapter from the Serialio.com last week. Got it very quickly, and ran into a couple of smaller issues. I called support a few times for different projects and was very impressed with my experience all the way around. The BlueSnap and SerialMagic are a godsend. It helped us integrate wireless capabilities into a legacy system we have used for years. Your products saved us $10,000+ in development costs.
I purchased the BlueSnapXP Bluetooth Dongle because as a Network Engineer for a growing company, I find myself up on a ladder or in some sort of lift working in the ceiling of a warehouse or production facility, programming some type of switch or access point. I also have a great fear of heights. The BlueSnapXP allows me to go up the ladder, plug the Bluetooth module into the network equipment, then work on the programming safely with both feet on the ground. No more standing on a ladder balancing my laptop in one hand and typing with the other. One of the…

We use both the BlueSnap-AAA Bluetooth Dongle & the BlueSnapXP DTR Bluetooth Dongle to connect our Sokkia electronic total stations to our HP50g calculators for field data collection. The BlueSnap-AAA Bluetooth Dongle is used for short-range connections from our HP50g calculators to our Sokkia total survey stations that have inbuilt short-range Bluetooth capabilities. The BlueSnapXP DTR Bluetooth Dongle is used for long-range connections from our HP50g calculators to our Sokkia total survey stations. In this case, the BlueSnapXP DTR …

Serialio's BlueSnap products work great! We use the BlueSnap-XP and BlueSnapUSB to communicate wirelessly from electronic flow meters to Fisher ROC 100/300/500/800 series flow computers. This is especially valuable when we have a transmitter that needs calibration and it's located several feet from the flow computer. We have also used this setup to configure MDS radios that we use for communication.

I recently purchased one of your BlueSnap RS-232 serial Bluetooth Dongle products. It works wonderfully! I'm sure that you have companies that are doing groundbreaking work with your products, mine is self-serving. I have developed a home automated bar. It is a simple setup using relay activated valves connected to CO2 pressurized "adult beverage" containers. The relays are on a serial board and I really wanted to communicate with them via my PDA. With the help of your Bluetooth dongle, I can do so wirelessly. With the touchscreen interface to a Visual Basic program created for…

Evergreen Research, Inc. is a medical device developer. Many products developed over the past 10 years use an embedded PC to control physical end effectors, like motors, solenoids, pumps, pressure transducers, load cells, etc. The PC uses serial lines, sometimes a single RS-485, sometimes a group of RS-232s, to communicate with embedded controllers, like 80C51s or 68HC12s. The embedded controllers operate the end effectors. Evergreen has developed a light-weight serial protocol that standardizes and validates the serial communications without imposing a high overhead. Some of the products…
