Moxa C218Turbo/PCI RS-232 Universal PCI Board

Lead time 14-22 days
8-port Intelligent RS-232 Universal PCI Board. Various connection options.
The MOXA C218Turbo/PCI is a multiport serial board that is specifically designed for small
but performance demanding applications.

With its state-of-the-art ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit), on-board RISC processor
(TI TMS320), and large I/O buffer (512 KB), the C218Turbo is a world class I/O serial board.

It can maintain a sustained 230.4 Kbps throughput on all eight ports simultaneously while only
occupying 5% of the host´s processor time, freeing up more host resources for other tasks.
This feature is particularly applicable to fast response demanding industrial control
applications, and high speed telecommunication applications.
