    DPM-USB Dual-Port Memory to USB Converter
    Since the inception of the personal computer, ORTEC has provided MCBs which couple to the PC via a flat ribbon cable to an ISA card in the computer. The ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) Bus is now almost completely extinct. Today’s modern PCs often do not have option slots of any type, but all have USB ports. An enhancement to the CONNECTIONS product family, the DPM-USB interface provides a means to convert the ORTEC Dual-Port Memory (DPM) communication to USB. 

    USB-CONC CONNECTIONS Distance Extender for ORTEC USB MCA Products
    The USB connection is the fast way to communicate to ORTEC Digital MultiChannel Buffer (MCB) or MultiChannel Analyzer (MCA) products such as the digiDART, digiBASE and DSPEC families. USB is an excellent way to connect instruments to a PC, especially laptops for portable use. However in some cases, it is desirable to connect one or more instruments over large distances, beyond what can be achieved by USB extension cables. USB-CONC is a "USB-to-Ethernet concentrator" which can interface up to 5 ORTEC MCBs to a PC using ethernet hardware and the TCP/IP protocol. Multiple USB-CONC devices can be connected to a single PC or a network of PCs.

    USBEXT USB Active Extension Cable
    With Model USBEXT the USB signals going in and out of the extension cable are buffered to assure signal quality. Both low speed and high speed USB devices will function with the USBEXT. No additional power supply is required (extension cable is powered by USB).
