Each side of the RS-232 baud rate converter 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.
