PCI Express, Serial Communication Board with 2 RS-232 ports, supports operating temperatures from 0 °C ~ +60 °C
The VEX-112 series communication card provides 2 RS-232 serial ports. Each port has support for speed up to 115200 bps and can work for full-duplex communication.
Users may specify a COM port number manually by setting COM-Selector (DIP switch), or let the driver choose an available number automatically. The driver provides a maximum of 128 KB software buffer for each COM port under Windows. It's practical for large file transmission.
The data lines of each serial port on i version VXC cards come with photocouplers design. The on-board photo couplers use a short optical transmission path to transfer a signal between elements of a circuit, and keep the data lines electrically isolated. It can help in cutting down on ground loops, common mode voltages and block voltage spikes, provide electrical isolation, and offer significant protection from serious over-voltage conditions in one circuit affecting the other.
In harsh industrial environments, the on-board ESD protection component (for i version) diverts the potentially damaging charge away from sensitive circuit to protect the computer and equipment from a sudden and momentary electric current.
The serial communication card is designed for use with intelligent devices like bar code reader, serial printers, intelligent sensors, instrumentation equipment, computers and almost any device with an RS-232 port.
