Serial Connection Information

To connect the CalMAN calibration computer to an Epson Projector

  1. Connect an RS232 port on your PC or to a USB to serial converter.
  2. If you are using a USB to serial converter, in Windows Device Manager, under “Ports (COM & LPT),” look for a “USB Serial Port (COMx)” listing.
  3. Note the listed COM port (COMx) of the serial converter.

USB to RS232 Serial Converter

For connecting to an Epson Projector with a computer that does not have an RS232 port, we recommend the FTDI (US232R-10 Premium) USB to RS232 converter. Extensive testing has determined that this FTDI converter, which includes a data buffer, is the most reliable adapter to use for CalMAN device control.
