Connect Tech Debuts 12 Port PC/104 Board with Electrical Isolation

4/2/2004 - Connect Tech Inc., designer and manufacturer of multi-port serial adapters, has designed an industry first: a 12 port, PC/104 serial adapter that is as efficient in throughput and performance as it is in saving space.

Connect Tech's customization engineers teamed with Bluefin Robotic Corp.'s designers to try and accommodate Bluefin's new 9-inch diameter shallow water AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle). The Xtreme/104 Isolated was designed to greatly reduce the size of the PC/104 stack already in use in Bluefin's larger vehicles, which normally house three of Connect Tech's four-port Xtreme/104 Optos.

The adapter includes eight switchable RS-232/422/485 ports and four dedicated RS-232 ports on one small PC/104 form factor. The Xtreme/104 Isolated offers support for all three RS-485 modes; full duplex, half duplex and multi-drop.

The Xtreme/104 Isolated data transfer rates up to 460.8 Kbps (RS-422/485) and 115.2 Kbps (RS-232). Each port is electrically isolated from one another, and from the board, using the latest in electrical isolation technology, providing 1 kV AC peak to peak protection.
