As digital technology advances and light-weight design requirements, more and more computer equipment does not support the traditional communication interface and change to USB (Universal Serial Bus technology) interface. The USB technology simplifies digital system design and support more number of communication interfaces, but also erected fences to traditional equipment isolation. Will challenge many automated control integration industry, the integration of old and new equipment, and approached full system function. Through the JetCon 1104 USB to 4-port Serial RS-232 Converter, the system integrator will be able to reduce the system integrate troubles,and make integration becomes easy and simply.
Fully Function USB/ RS-232C Serial Converter
The JetCon 1104 supports USB 2.0 interface and RS-232C serial channels with 921.6Kbps throughput. It provides fully flow control function enabled to connects Data Communication Equipment, like as PSTN modem, or Programmable Logic Control device which needs flow control. The serial interface supports fully communication parameters which can be configured by operating system- Windows, Macintosh and Linux systems.
Satisfy Field Site Application in One USB interface
Most of modern Note Book supports few serial interfaces; User may install USB mouse onto the Notebook, and the USB port number may present 1 or 2 ports only. The JetCon 1104 supports 4-channel RS-232 interfaces to satisfy the multiple serial communications in the field site application with few USB interface computing system. The computing system could be Windows based system, MAC based system or Linux system. With the software property software driver, user can configure the serial communication parameters and I/O interrupt, address through the system BIOS setting.
The following diagram shows the host computer communicates with programmer logic controller via the USB interface, and the JetCon1100 provides USB to serial port convert function. It offers the logical com mapping to physical serial port function.
