Com port Voltages

Does anyone know what the voltage is that comes out of the com port? I am setting up a relay to a transformer to operate a flashing light off com port2 on an Asus Motherboard and I need to know what the voltage is.

thx

  1. Based on a google search, this <A HREF="http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_RS232.html" target="_new">http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_RS232.html</A> came up and it and the links in it say it is supposed to handle anything from 3 to 15 volts. In the db25 spec, pin 9 and 10 are supposed to hold a + and - (respectively) 12v signal for testing only.
