CP-132UL /UL-i

Industrial 802.11a/b/g/n wireless client




  • 2-port RS-422/485 high speed communication board
  • Compact PCI board size
  • Works perfectly with all major operating systems
  • Various connection options
  • Data transmission speed up to 921.6 Kbps
  • On-chip hardware flow control



The CP-132 Series of 2-port serial boards is designed for RS-422/485 industrial communication. CP-132 serial boards support 2 independent RS-422 or RS-485 ports, with each port able to control up to 32 devices in a multidrop environment. This series of PCI 2-port serial boards provides a reliable communication link (RS-422/485) over a longer distance (up to 4000 ft), and is suitable for industrial environments.


By using ADDC™ (Automatic Data Direction Control) intelligence, applications can easily manage half-duplex RS-485 port’s data transmission and receiving without the need for writing extra code. In addition, on-chip hardware flow control and built-in termination resistors guarantee data integrity, and optical isolation and surge protection options are also available to deliver high reliability. All of the above attributes make the CP-132 Series of multiport serial boards suitable for harsh industrial applications.
