The Contec COM-4C-LPE is a PCI Express interface card used to perform an outside device and serial communication using RS-232C. It is equivalent to a low profile size slot and can be modified to fit a standard size slot with the bracket provided. It has a serial port of one channel with one piece. Using standard COM driver software [COM Setup Disk included], the COM-4C-LPE card can access the COM port using Windows or Linux.
Max. 921,600bps RS-232C Serial Communication
The < COM-4C-LPE > has four RS-232C-standard serial ports. Baud rates from 2 to 921,600bps can be set. When using the bundled “Standard COM Driver Software” and “Driver library API-PAC(W32)”, baud rates from 15 to 921,600bps can be set.
Can be used as Windows, Linux-standard COM ports, using the bundled driver library
Comes with a driver software that allows the cards to be used under Windows / Linux in the same way as COM ports on the PC. Under Windows, the product supports the OS-standard Win32 API communication function as well as Visual Basic MSComm. Under Linux, OS-standard tty driver’s standard-function can be used. In addition, supplies a diagnostic program to confirm hardware operation and to perform a communication test with equipment.
Max. 16 cards can be installed as configured in the range COM1 - COM256.
Up to 16 cards can be mounted on a single PC. COM1 - COM256 can be set using the device manager.
Equipped with separate 128-byte FIFO buffers to transmit and receive.
Employed a buffer memory 128-byte dedicated to transmission and 128-byte. These are FIFO format, useful for high speed communications and to reduce the load to the CPU when transmitting/receiving. As the device manager can be used to enable/disable the use of FIFO and set the FIFO trigger size, this permits operation to be adjusted to achieve optional performance for your system.
Optional cables and connectors are available for a varity of applications
Distribution cable for 4channels and 44-pin D-SUB connectors (male type) for your own cables are available as optional.
The control line for RS-232C can be controlled and monitored by software.
The control lines for RTS, CTS, DTR and DSR can be controlled and monitored using an application. The lines can be controlled or monitored by software from the application.
