Isolation Type: Port-Port Isolation Port-PC Isolation
Enables you to communicate with and control external serial hardware from a PXI or PXI Express chassis using asynchronous serial interfaces that support a variety of protocols.
The PXI Serial Interface Module offers a number of options for connecting to serial hardware. You can choose from common serial protocols, such as RS232, RS422, and RS485. The PXI Serial Interface Module also offers various isolation, hyperthreading, and multiprocessor compatibility options as well as 4- and 2-wire transceiver modes for full- and half-duplex communication. NI serial interfaces also appear as standard COM ports for compatibility with programs that use serial communications.
