General

The Blastronix RS 422/485 4 port cards are some of the highest performance  cards on the market today.  It supports speeds of up to 920K bps on all ports simultaneously.  All units come with 16C954 UART's which feature user configurable 128 byte transmit and receive buffers (FIFO's) to help guard against loss of data in your busy system.   16C954 UART's also can be configured for automatic hardware and software flow control  The driver will automatically assign addresses and IRQ's.  The card will share with other Blastronix cards or other PCI type cards.  The driver will automatically assign the device names beginning at the first available COM port device.   Any existing application software will run transparently with these units.

Protocol Selection

The unit supports both 4 wire and 2 wire applications.  The protocol section for either 2 wire or 4 wire mode is achieved by simply installing a jumper for each  port to select the desired protocol.  In 4 wire mode the card may be used for direct end to end communication or can be used in 485 multdrop mode.  As many as 32 devices my be connected in parallel in multdrop mode at distances of up to 5000 feet away.

In 2 wire 485 mode the card features our Auto Enable function for driver and receiver control.  When transmitting, the driver is automatically turned on and the receiver is turned off.  At the end of transmission, the driver is then turned off and the receiver is turned on.  There is virtually 0 delay associated with this operation so that the remote devices may speak immediately without worry of data collisions.
