FT010DB End-of-Life

Serial Data Transceivers

OT Systems FT010DB data series offers a plug-and-play solution that provides instant product compatibility for EIA compliant serial interface equipment and reliability in harsh environments, a perfect compliment to any commercial, government or intelligent transportation application. The FT010DB transmits up to 4-channels of bi-directional serial data.
The Data Series offers compatibility for the three most common data sources and does not require the input and output data interfaces to be the same. Compatible data interfaces include EIA RS-232, RS-422 and (2- or 4- wire) RS-485 with tri-state, data interfaces and are transparent to data protocol.
The product features in card module or standalone type.
