MOXA Intelligent CP-204J
4 Port RS-232 Intelligent Multiport Board for
Embedded Systems
Overview
The MOXA Intelligent CP-204J, which uses much less cabling than other systems, is specifically designed for embedded systems,
PC-based machines, and other space-critical applications. Unlike the fan-out cable or external connection box used by most other
products, the CP-204J board, with its built-in RJ45 bracket design, not only saves cable layout space but also reduces cost. Hence,
it is suitable for PC-based embedded system applications such as POS, Kiosk, and ATM.
Other outstanding features of CP-204J, such as its state-of-the-art ASIC design, on-board RISC processor (TI TMS320) and large
I/O buffer (512 KB), make it possible for CP-204J to use minimal system resources. This makes it suitable for applications that involve
fast response transactions, as well as applications requiring reliable 24-hour service.
