Multiport Serial Boards CI-134 Series 4-port RS-422/485 ISA serial boards ››Cost-effective ISA boards with 4 RS-422/485 ports ››RS-485 data direction control with ADDC® or by RTS ››921.6 kbps maximum baudrate for super fast data transmission ››16-byte FIFO and on-chip hardware flow control ››Surge protection and electrical isolation available ››Built-in termination resistors Overview The CI-134 series ISA boards come with 4 independent RS-422/485 serial ports for connecting data acquisition equipment and other serial devices to a PC. Connect your devices over longer distances— up to 1.2 km (4000 ft)—and ensure greater reliability in industrial environments with on-board surge protection and electrical isolation (available with some models). Enjoy greater versatility by using point-to-point full duplex connections, or set up a half duplex RS-485 multi-drop network. Specifications Hardware Comm.
