The CP-134U and CP-134U-I 4-port universal PCI boards are designed for industrial automation applications that require a long-distance, multipoint, PC-based data acquisition solution.
On-Chip Automatic Data Direction Control for Precise RS-485 Communication
RS-485 communication requires precise timing control to enable and disable the line driver. The Moxa Turbo Serial Engine™ chip that powers the CP-134U board comes with on-chip ADDC®, which makes RS-485 as easy to use as RS-232.
RS-485 Multidrop for up to 31 Devices Within 1.2 km
The CP-134U universal PCI board has four RS-422/485 serial ports, each of which can achieve data rates up to 921.6 kbps. In RS-485 mode, the board can connect up to 31 daisy-chained RS-485 devices within a range of 1.2 km. For long-distance RS-485 communication, choose the CP-134U-I, which comes with 2 kV electrical isolation protection to prevent equipment damage.
Drivers Provided for Windows, Linux, and UNIX
We continue to support a wide variety of operating systems, and the CP-134U and CP-134U-I boards are no exception. Reliable Windows, Linux, and UNIX drivers are provided for all Moxa boards, and other operating systems, such as WEPOS, are also supported for embedded integration.
