- Flexibility: Provides the option of adding up to 128 ports per NT960 host adapter using ACM16s or ACM/Flex-16s.
- Adaptability: The ACM/Flex-16 offers a highly modular and lightweight design allowing for easy integration into your application. Serial Line Interface Modules provide different electrical interfaces such as RS-232, RS-422/485 and 20 mA Current Loop on the same ACM/Flex-16 module. Provides full support for half duplex and full duplex RS-485 communications.
- User Definability: The ACM/Flex-16 and the ACM-16 (RS-232) are fully compatible with each other. They can be mixed and matched to meet your precise requirements.
To satisfy your unique connectivity requirements, Connect Tech designed the ACM/Flex-16 to enhance the Intellicon-NT960 and NT960/PCI serial I/O subsystems. The ACM/Flex-16 brings our versatile “Flex” technology to the NT960, offering RS-232, RS-485 and Current Loop electrical interfaces.
