Kontron CP347

3U CompactPCI Quad Serial 232/422/485 Port Board

Manufacturer: Kontron
Kontron CP347

Kontron's CP347 is a quad port RS232/422/485 interface card with 2kV isolation between I/O and system.

Serial channels in an application are required very often to transfer data, get a COM port, control all common industrial serial devices, such as test and measurement projects, function generators, etc., or even to connect a modem, mouse, etc. to the system. The CP347 provides the latest technology to achieve these classic tasks but still remains very cost effective.
