Industrial PCI Express Card to RS422/485 Serial

  • Uses DB44 to DB9 octopus cable through the Card bus connection
  • Enables ESD and Surge protection to connected serial signal devices
  • Easily installed and configured in your system
  • Each port is with 256 bytes FIFO for transmit and receive

PCI Express 8-port industrial serial I/O card is a plug & play high-speed serial I/O expansion card for the PCI Express bus. Connecting to a PCI Express bus on your computer, the PCI Express 8-port industrial serial I/O card instantly adds eight RS-422/485 serial I/O communication ports to your system.

Designed to support industrial high-speed serial COM port data rates up to 921.6K bps. Each serial port is fully compatible with 16C550 UART, with enhanced feature of 256 bytes TX and RX FIFO buffer for higher performance. The PCI Express 8-port serial I/O card is an advanced and high efficient solution for serial data communication and industrial automation applications.
