RS-232 Serial Interface
Model Number: CI-RS232
- The RS232 Communication Interface (CI-RS232) provides a simple means of interface between Touche’s primary network and virtually any other third party device (i.e. audio/video systems) capable of communicating with “string” commands via an RS232 serial connection.
- This interface utilizes Touche’s standard non-licensed system configuration software to configure this module. This eliminates complicated procedures and additional steps when configuring this powerful device.
- A standard 9-pin D style female socket is utilized for connection to third party devices.
- This interface allows for input and output messaging. Messages from third party devices are able to “trigger” a pre-programmed event within the Touche network and likewise messages representing events in the Touche network are able to generate an action in the third party device.
- Connection to Touche’s network is accomplished using a standard Cat 5 cable. This device can be daisy-chained with all other devices on the primary network. Control power for the module is derived from the same Cat 5 Cable.
- Configuration of the various RS232 serial communication parameters is completely software configurable for adaptability to nearly any third party device.
