ESD Protected RS-232 Rear-I/O Module

  • cu8

The CU8-RS232 is a rear-I/O PHY module for CompactPCI® systems, to be used e.g. in combination with the serial interface card CU4-SOPRANO. The CU8-RS232 is provided with an EIA-232E data transceiver for EMI sensitive applications.
The 9-position male D-Sub connector is wired as a PC COM Port. Data transfer rates up to 230kbps are allowed. The module has been designed for operation in harsh electrical environments – EMI immunity includes ESD protection in excess of 15kV. The CU8-RS232 module is intended for use especially with the serial interface board CU4-SOPRANO. This CompactPCI® card has its TTL level serial ports routed to the backplane connector J2, for rear I/O by additional PHY (physical layer) modules.
Mounted onto the CPCI backplane from behind, the additional distribution board CU9-BASE for up to 16 ports is equipped with metric 2mm pin headers, mating the flat ribbon cable assemblies to the particular PHY modules such as the CU8-RS232.
