Supported protocols include RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485. In RS-485 both echo and non-echo modes are supported. Max baud rate is 460.8kbps for all protocols. Emerald-MM-8P also has 8 digital I/O lines with programmable direction. Operating temperature is -40 to +85C.

2005-07-20 New Rugged Opto-Isolated Serial Port Module
Our newest PC/104 serial port board, EMM-OPTO-XT, offers 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports with opto-isolation. Each serial port is isolated from the other ports and from the system electronics with 1000V AC/DC protection. You can mix and match serial protocols to meet your application needs. Protocols, addresses, and interrupt levels are selected with jumpers. A ruggedized version with custom hardwired settings is also available. The board is tested and guaranteed for -40 to +85C operation. A 24-line digital I/O circuit based on an 82C55 chip is also included on the board. Click here to visit the product datasheet.
