Sealevel Systems, Inc. Announces Compact PCI Multi-Interface Serial I/O Adapters

Sealevel Systems, Inc. announces a new line of CompactPCI Multi-Interface Serial I/O Adapters. 3U compatible, the new COMM+2.cPCI and COMM+4.cPCI provide 2 or 4 individually selectable RS-232/422/485 ports, supporting data rates up to 921.6K bps.

Select RS-232 when highly reliable serial ports are required for short distances. Choose the RS-422 mode for long distance device connections up to 4000ft., where noise immunity and high data integrity are essential.

Up to 31 RS-485 devices can be connected to each port to automate your data collection. Interfaces are individually field selectable for each port, providing maximum application flexibility. Optional DB9 terminal blocks are available to simplify wiring and custom pin-out configurations.

In RS-485 mode, our "industry first" auto-enable hardware automatically handles the RS-485 driver enable allowing the RS­485 ports to be treated as standard serial ports by the operating system. This allows the standard COM: driver to be utilized for RS­485 communications.

The COMM+2.cPCI (3U), model number 7901 lists at $459.00. The COMM+4.cPCI (3U), model number 7904 is priced at $569.00. OEM and volume pricing are available.

Sealevel also provides 9-pin terminal blocks to simplify serial connections. Part numbers TB05 and TB06 provide DB9 female connectors and screw terminals. The TB05 gives the user a single 9-pin connection, while the TB06 provides two 9-pin connections. The TB05 and TB06 connect directly to the onboard ports of the cPCI card.

The TB05 is priced at $19.95 and $28.95 when purchased as part number KT105. The KT105 kit includes a 6ft. 9-pin male to female cable. The TB06 is priced at $24.95 and $43.95 when purchased as part number KT106. The KT106 kit includes two, 6ft. 9-pin male to female cables.

All products ship with Sealevel Systems' SeaCOM suite of Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP drivers. In addition to Windows drivers and utilities, SeaCOM includes drivers, utilities, application notes, and technical details to simplify installations in Linux, QNX, and DOS.
