UNXUNI range

UNXUNI range

Overview

  • 4 or 8 high performance serial ports, universal bus (3.3V, 5V, PCI-X)
  • Interface in external metallic connection case (RS232, RS422, RS485, current loop)
  • Latest technologies : 128 byte FIFO, RS485 mode self line turn-around
  • "Plug and Play", PCI  2.3 standard compliant
  • Windows & Linux operating systems support

Introduction

PCI bus based, it is jumperless configurable.

Its structure deporting the electrical interface in an external housing enables it to support all industrial electrical standards (RS232, RS422, RS485, current loop) while offering an extreme electrical protection level.

 

The different housings available allow the user to choose channel by channel the type of power interface.

 

They offer features meeting a wide variety of constraints:

  • Speed up to 5 Mbps
  • Galvanic isolation 2 kV eff.

 

ACKSYS’ card users can leverage their investments in applications where the variety of electrical interfaces made their task more complex.
