PCI Multiport Serial Cards

PCI hardware configurations offer the most cost effective way to connect multiple CNC machines to a single PC or server. If your business is looking to reap all the benefits of a high performance DNC system at the lowest price per port, look no further. Our PCI Multiport Serial Cards are designed specifically for small to mid-size installations.

  • Add 4, 8, 16 or 32 “native” COM ports to your PC
  • Supports most popular operating systems
  • Fan-out cables and serial interface boxes supporting DB9, DB25 and RJ45 connectors
  • Supports 32- and 64-bit, 3.3 and 5.0-volt PCI bus architectures
  • Extremely reliable and one of the industry’s longest Mean Times Between Failures
  • Surge protected ports are available

PCI hardware and software bundles are offered in 4-port, 8-port, 16-port and 32-port systems. This scenario has a 16-port PCI card physically installed into an available PCI slot on the computer. The PCI card adds 12 COM ports to the computer, and is connected to a 16-port interface box. The interface box resides outside the computer, but must remain within 20 feet. An RS232 cable will be run from each CNC control’s serial port back to the interface box. The cable will be connected to the DB25 ports on the interface box.
