EMR Series - Serial Data Port Router Modules

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The EMR Data Port Router module occupies 2 slots in a EMX frame and can function as a standalone 48-port router or can interlink modules to expand to a 288x data port router in a single 6RU frame.

Each port is software selectable to be RS-232 or RS-422 to accommodate the devices connected, the EMR-PR48-A will do the translation to connect data flow between RS-232 and RS-422 devices. In addition, each port can be configured for manual or automatic sensing of controlling and controlled devices, as well Sony interface pin is supported.

The EMR-PR48-A also offers signal status monitoring for think like data activity, baud rate, Sony pin state, RX polarity when port is in 422 mode.
