Many older devices lack the option to reconfigure baud rate, data format and
handshaking. Model 232BRC acts as a translator between asynchronous
devices, matching each device’s needs while maintaining the highest possible
Each side can be individually configured to suit the device connected to it.
The module supports any data rate up to 115.2 kbps and all standard data
formats. Each side can also supply or accept hardware or software handshaking,
allowing the higher speed device to be located on either port.
A PC is used to configure the Model 232BRC, but once configured, the
module may be installed on any system. Non-volatile memory maintains all
parameters when power is removed. Each port buffers 16K bytes of data.
LED indicators on each port signals when data is present in the buffer.
The connectors are DB9 female on port A, DB9 male on port B. Model
232BRC requires 12 VDC@100 mA. Power supply is not included. Model 232PS is well-matched to this
unit. Module dimensions are 5.8 x 3.6 x 1.2 in (14.6 x 9.1 x 3.0 cm).
