Press Release Summary:
Models 104-COM-8SM and 104-COM-4SM are 8- and 4-port, asynchronous, serial communication boards that support field selectable RS-232/422/485 communication. Ports are accessed via two 40-pin IDC type right angle header connectors. Boards use type 16780 UARTS and include 64-byte transmit/receive FIFO buffers to protect against lost data in multi-tasking systems. Crystal oscillator permits baud rate up to 921.6 K. Standard and extended temperature versions are available.
Original Press Release:
New High Speed PC/104 Eight and Four Port RS-232/422/485 Serial Communication Boards
San Diego, Calif.-January 26, 2004-ACCES I/O Products, Inc. announces the latest additions to its line of PC/104 boards, the 104-COM-8SM and 104-COM-4SM. These eight and four port, asynchronous, serial communication boards support field selectable RS-232/422/485 communication. Ports are accessed via two 40-pin IDC type right angle header connectors. The boards include a convenient Auto-RTS feature, which makes half-duplex RS-485 communications effortless. The 104-COM-8SM and 4SM are feature-rich and allow for the connection of multiple serial devices-ideal for a variety of applications such as POS, gaming systems, machine monitoring and control, military, high-density networking applications or any other application requiring the connection of RS-232/422/485 serial devices to a PC/104 compatible system.
The 104-COM-8SM and-4SM were designed using type 16780 UARTS and include 64-byte transmit/receive FIFO buffers to protect against lost data in multi-tasking systems while maintaining 100% compatibility with all operating system COM port drivers. A crystal oscillator located on the board permits baud rate capability up to 921.6K. ACCES offers the 104-COM-8SM and 4SM in both standard and extended temperature versions ideal for outdoor applications or harsh industrial surroundings.
Other features of the Model 104-COM-8SM and -4SM include:
Operating temperature range: 0 to +70°C (Optional extended temp -40° to +80°C)
Humidity: 5% to 95% RH, non-condensing
Low power required: +5VDC at 80mA typical, (0.4W) No +/-12V required
Field selectable RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485
Programmable individual non-volatile COM base addresses with shared IRQs allow for flexible and easy universal system integration.
Fixed bias and jumper-selectable termination provided on each transmit-and-receive channel
The 104-COM-8SM and -4SM are supported by all operating systems and include a free DOS, Linux and Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP compatible software package. This includes sample programs and source code in "C" and Pascal for DOS, and "C," Delphi, C++ Builder, and Visual C++ for Windows. Also included is a graphical option configuration program in Windows. An easy-to-use Windows terminal program simplifies verification of proper operation.
