The Porter is a very versatile, code activated switch that allows a computer or terminal to send serial or parallel data to a selected device. Each port (4 or 8) can be configured to match the connected equipment's protocol.
The Porter is easy to install and uses commonly available cables. It works with any device with serial or parallel ports. The serial connectors are DB25F an the parallel connectors are Centronics 36 pin female.
The receive buffers accept data on all ports simultaneously. This data can then be read from the master port one at a time. The Porter transmits from buffers on all ports simultaneously. The "clear buffer" command purges all data in a port's buffer. The broadcast feature allows you to send data simultaneously on all ports. The Porter's buffer is expandable to 256K bytes.
These are a few of the features that make the Porter one of the best code activated switches on the market. Call us today about your code-activated switch application.
