As an IT expert, you like to stay on the leading edge of new technologies. Unfortunately, the equipment you have to support doesn’t always keep up. When you need legacy devices to work in tandem with your newest additions, then you must find ways to adapt. Antaira Technologies’ PCI RS-232/422/485 serial boards are one way to bridge those gaps and keep everything in harmony. These serial cards offer everything you need to keep the old printers, plotters and other legacy add-ons communicating with state-of-the-art servers or desktops. Choose from 2 to 16 serial ports, standard or low profile heights and isolation protection. Each board is designed for the demanding environments associated with industrial networks, and they are backed by a standard 5-year warranty.
Simple Swaps for More Options
Committing to PCI connections, the serial boards are easy to integrate into any standard setup. The MSC-102A 2-Port RS-232 allows you to add two serial connections for the cost of one PCI slot. It is preinstalled with modern
Windows and Linux drivers, so you can quickly add them with little labor. The 32-bit architecture supports data rates to 133MB/s, ensuring the card will never create a bottleneck.
For more restrictive stations, the low-profile MSC-102B1L is a great option. It supports universal serial applications including 2-wire and 4-wire RS-422/485 connections. Dual functioning as client or server, it fits painlessly into your system. And, it offers an option of 15kV surge and 2,500 Vrms isolation for added protection.
