AccelePort® C/X

Expandable asynchronous serial cards

  • Product Last Time Buy: February 28, 2014
  • Up to 128 RS-232 serial ports on a single slot
  • Serial ports can be located up to 1000 feet from server
  • PCI-X & 64-bit slot compatible
  • Product datasheet

A single AccelePort C/X host PCI Universal (3.3V & 5V) adapter, which includes a powerful on-board processor, can support up to eight C/CON Concentrators, providing up to 128 surge-protected ports from a single PCI or PCI-X slot on your server. A system can start out with eight or sixteen ports and easily expand by adding C/CON concentrators. For ease of installation and optimum flexibility, the concentrators can be located up to 1,000 feet (305 meters) from the host server. A fiber optic cabling option allows you to locate your workgroups up to 1.25 miles (2 km) apart.

The AccelePort C/X multiport serial card system is a fast, simple and highly expandable asynchronous concentrator. This flexible solution is ideal for providing intelligent serial connectivity for larger multiuser systems, including retail Point-of-Sale (POS), office automation and data collection environments.

This powerful solution is capable of connecting as many as 128 ports from a single PCI or PCI-X slot on the server. One adapter can support up to eight Digi C/CON Concentrators with 16 high-speed, surge-protected RS-232 serial ports. Depending on the host platform, up to eight AccelePort C/X host adapters can be installed, enabling a single host to support hundreds of ports.

Concentrators can be located up to 1,000 feet (305 m) from the host server using standard RS-422 cabling. Synchronous modems or a multiplexer (mux) enable seamless connections to concentrators anywhere around the world.
