The CTI Comet USB is a Caller ID unit with USB connectivity.
It is a Caller ID device for decoding the Caller’s telephone number from the telephone line and presenting it on a virtual COM Port of a PC. This product is powered entirely from the USB port. This is a hardware only product and can be used with your existing software to create a fully integrated call management solution.
The CTI Comet USB creates a virtual COM port on the computer that can be connected to in the same way as the CTI Meteor Plus.
Having carried out a survey amongst the users of the CTI Meteor Plus we have streamlined the design and only included the features that our customers actually wanted. This has resulted in an even more reliable unit at a lower cost.
The CTI Comet USB is a simple Caller ID product. It does not have Dialed Digit Detection, On/Off hook monitoring or Call Recording features of the CTI Meteor Plus.
The CTI Comet USB has many applications. Below are some examples:
- EPOS terminals in fast food outlets
- Customer verification for taxi companies
- Doctors and Dental surgeries
- Incoming call Logging

The Comet derives its power from the USB connection. Users may experience problems with the operation of the Comet if the PC or Epos Terminal to which it is connected is allowed to turn off the USB Root Hub and hence switch off the Comet.
It is strongly recommended that the Power Management for the USB Root Hub is disabled.
