APCI-7XXX-3

The PCI serial interfaces are available as 1-port, 2-port and 4-port version. They are configured by inserting MX modules s in the following modes: RS232, RS422, RS485 and 20 mA current loop, which the board identifies automatically. The modes can be freely combined. The interface is supported through a 128-byte FIFO buffer for sending and receiving data and guarantees reliable operation at high transfer rates. Drivers for Windows and Linux as well as programming samples are included.

Description

The APCI-7xxx-3 communication boards are configured by inserting MX modules which the board identifies automatically. The 1- to 4-port serial interfaces APCI‑7xxx‑3 can be used as universal PCI boards in 3.3 V or in 5 V systems, and in PCI or PCI-X systems. The serial interfaces can be configured through modules in the following modes: RS232, RS422, RS485 and 20 mA current loop (with optical isolation). The MX modules with optical isolation allow a protection of up to 1000 V for the use in noisy environments where ground loops can occur. The I/O lines are protected against short-circuits, fast transients, electrostatic discharge and
high-frequency EMI. The interface is supported through a 128-byte FIFO buffer for sending and receiving data and guarantees reliable operation at high transfer rates.
