The CP-118E-A-I and CP-138E-A-I are smart PCI Express multiport serial boards designed for POS and ATM applications, and for use by industrial automation system manufacturers and system integrators. The CP-118E-A-I and CP-138E-A-I are compatible with all popular operating systems, and each of their eight serial ports supports data rates of up to 921.6 kbps and provide full modem control signals, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of serial peripherals. In addition, the CP-118E-A-I and CP-138E-A-I work with PCI Express x1, allowing the boards to be installed in any PCI Express slot.
Setting up an RS-485 network is relatively straightforward. The challenge comes when the power is turned on and the devices connected to the network start transmitting and receiving data. In most cases, engineers will need to further tune the system by configuring pull high/low resistors and terminators at strategic points along the network. Moxa’s Intelligent RS-485 technology supports two essential features to make it easy: (1) One-Click Installation automatically analyzes the network topology and then adjusts terminators and pull high/low resistors. (2) One-Click Troubleshooting tells you what to change to make a deficient network viable.
