Introduction
The PCL-740 offers a versatile range of high speed interfacing options. You can switch its single port between the popular RS-232, long distance RS-422, multi-drop RS-485, or
noise-resistant current-loop. The card's 16C550 UART has an on-chip 16-byte FIFO buffer for faster and more reliable communication, especially under Windows.
The PCL-741 provides two isolated RS-232 or current-loop serial ports. You can configure each port individually to RS-232 or current-loop using onboard jumpers.
The card has two 16C550 UARTs with on-chip 16-byte FIFO buffers. The UARTs buffer data into 16-byte packets before sending it to the bus. This drastically reduces CPU load and
avoids data loss when the system is busy and cannot process the interrupt quickly. These FIFO buffers make the PCL-741 especially suitable for high speed serial I/O under Windows.
Onboard optical isolators protect your PC and equipment against damage from ground loops, increasing system reliability in harsh environments.
