Product Lines

LAVA’s strength is, and has always been, engineering and building simple, configurable, and reliable computer interfaces. This focus has earned us the reputation as “The Source for Ports.”
Our new tablet adapters extend the capability of Samsung tablets, enabling charging, USB host mode, and wired Ethernet. Our internal adapter boards for PCI, PCIe, and ISA remain popular with system builders, resellers, and distributors worldwide who require additional COM and parallel ports. Serial device servers represent LAVA’s Ethernet interface line. LAVA Ether-Serial Links are specifically designed to IP-enable and control peripherals from a remote computer.

Tablet Adapters and Hubs: USB, Ethernet, PoE

Adapters to simultaneously give charging and USB host mode to Samsung tablets. Also Power over Ethernet, Ethernet LAN, PoE to USB power.


PCI Bus I/O Cards

Tried and true serial cards are compatible with any serial peripheral and provide the most convenient way of connecting PCs to external modems, serial printers, interface and measurement devices, point-of-sale devices, and more.


PCIe Bus I/O Cards

High-reliability expansion boards add RS-232 serial and EPP parallel ports on the PCIe bus. LAVA’s PCIe cards are the most reliable and flexible products on the market.


Ethernet-to-serial remote port

Ideal for POS systems, security systems, industrial automation, building automation, or any application using RS-232 devices, the LAVA Ether-Serial Link provides a serial port that is network-enabled and simple to install, configure, and control.


ISA Bus I/O Cards

LAVA ISA bus I/O boards offer a generous selection of IRQ and COM settings, to minimize the possibility of conflicts in resource allocation — ideal for systems where manual setting of IRQ and COM addresses is a must.


USB Serial Links

The serial ports of the LAVA USB-Serial Link look and act precisely like they are built into your computer: they appear right alongside other serial ports in Windows’ Device Manager.



LAVA DataTap-IP provides a ‘pass-through’ data route to any RS-232 serial peripheral, while also sending that data over Ethernet to any IP target. Popular for sending POS transaction data simultaneously to both a serial printer and a DVR for video keying.


HQ-ST Link Systems

LAVA’s HQ-ST Link system creates a dedicated high-speed Internet connection between your polling PC and remote cash registers or POS stations. It is designed from the ground up to provide the simplest configuration and most secure connections.


POS Serial Port Splitter

The LAVA POS Serial Port Splitter provides serial port splitting, plain and simple. This capability can enable a POS station with just one serial port to take inputs from two serial peripherals without conflicts. The EPOS station provides the logic to distinguish serial data sources.
