Connectivity with RS232 interface

RS232 interface has flexible and can be communicated long range. As one of the common interface, RS232 can communicate to most applications.

RS232 to other serial interface

Selectable signal characteristics

  • Supports bi-directional communication
  • Flow control with DTR/DSR
  • Baud rates can be changed by jumper settings

RS232 to other serial interfaces

The RS232 can be converted into other communication method like a USB, RS422 and Ethernet by using a converter device which is available in the market.

RS232 with Vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) module

Longer range communication

The standard communication distance is 10 feet (approx. 3 meters)
