Serial Cards are suited for harsh, outdoor applications.
January 3, 2006 -
Able to operate in temperatures from -40 to +85°C, JetCard1204w (4-port) and JetCard1208w (8-port) RS-232 Universal PCI Wide Temperature Communication Cards utilize OX16C954 single-chip, 4-port UART. Each UART channel is software-compatible with 16C550 devices and offers data rates to 921.6 Kbps as well as 128-byte FIFOs. Products improve automatic software flow control using XON/XOFF and automatic hardware flow control using CTS#/RTS# to prevent FIFO over-run.

Choose Korenix New JetCard 1204w/1208w 4/8 Port Serial Cards for the Cold Christmas
Korenix JetCard1204w / 1208w, 4- and 8-port RS-232 Universal PCI Wide Temperature Communication Card, is the world's first serial communication card that support operation temperature from -40°C to 85°C. The extreme harsh operation temperature design provides perfect solution for extreme outdoor applications, such as building automation, security, billboard broadcasting.
In order to achieve world's highest performance, JetCard 1204w / 1208w uses a high performance single chip solution OX16C954, 4-port Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter. Each UART channel in the JetCard offers data rates up to 921.6 Kbps and 128-byte FIFOs. The FIFOs reduce CPU's loading and allow utilization of higher data rates. Each UART channel is software compatible with the widely-used industry-standard 16C550 devices. In addition to increased performance and FIFO size, JetCard 1204w / 1208w also improve automatic software flow control by using XON/XOFF, and automatic hardware flow control by using CTS#/RTS# to prevent FIFO over-run. Moreover, JetCard 1204w / 1208w come with 15KV ESD surge protection, protecting your communications from power instability. JetCard 1204w / 1208w has easy-to-install driver that supports Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 and Linux. All JetCard Series has CE/FCC certificates and support global 5 year warranty.
