Product short description:
  • Four asynchronous EIA-485 isolated serial ports
  • 16 or 64-byte FIFO buffers
  • Interrupt support
  • Programmable baud rate (up to 512Kbps)

Not recommended for new designs. Limited availability - please contact sales department.

IP512 Industrial I/O Pack (IP) modules provide an isolated, high-performance serial communication interface for your computer.

Large FIFO buffers on the transmit and receive lines of each serial port enable more efficient data processing. When the buffer is full, an interrupt is sent to the CPU to read the data. To match your budget and performance requirements, you can order 16 or 64-byte (IP512-16/64) buffers.
