The EMX-ESG614 provides 6 RS-232/422/485 ports based on the SMSC SCH3116 industrial temperature UART in the efficient EMX I/O form factor. Ports 1 - 4 support RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 protocols, while ports 5 and 6 support RS-232 or TTL mode. In RS-232 mode, ports 1-4 offer TX, RX, RTS, and CTS signals, while ports 5 and 6 offer TX and RX only. All ports feature programmable bad rates up to 921,600 in all protocols.
EMX-ESG614 also provides 14 digital I/O lines for general purpose application. Each line has individually programmable direction, and all lines offer ESD protection for increased reliability.
For applications requiring GPS functionality, EMX-ESG614 can be fitted with the Trimble Condor C2626 GPS receiver offering up to 5Hz update rate, NMEA communications protocol, and PPS timing output. An on-board backup battery maintains the GPS almanac for faster acquisition after power-up.
Wide range -40ºC to 85ºC operating temperature and fully latching I/O connectors provide appropriate ruggedness for vehicle and harsh environment applications.
