ACCES LPCI-COM-8SM is widely known for its series. The series is that of the LPCI-COM. These devices are characterized as having eight or four-port asynchronous serial communication cards. This are used in PCI bus computers. It is said that these cards cater to all RS-232, RS-422, and or RS-485 communications. The length of each device measures about 6.6 inches and the height measures about 2.21 inches. Each device may be mounted in any 3.3 or 5-volt PCI or PCI-X expansion slot. This may need a regular profile mounting bracket for support in any standard-sized computer. Users may also get hold of a low profile bracket that is made specifically for low profile computers. Low profile computers can be defined as those having thin client and high density rack-mount servers. In addition, these cards are equipped with an eight connector DB-9 breakout cable. Take note that, you may not buy other external breakout box. This is targeted for use in areas such as retail, hospitality, postal automation, and POS system applications as well as in various industries such as gaming and defense wherein space is a valuable resource. Another notable feature of the cards are their built-in crystal oscillators. Moreover, they have an exact baud rate capability which reaches up to 115,200. It is also said that higher speeds can reach up to 921k baud levels. The drivers/receivers of the occillators require connections such as RS-485 & RS-422 that are both from type SP491which are capable of driving long communication lines at high baud rates.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
A serial communication card is another type of PCI card and that is connected to a bus. This enables a user to connect components to the computer's processor. Users may see this connection among other computer hardware such as hard disks, memory, sound systems, video systems and the like. The very usage f this device is to construct parts that are more interchangeable. These devices can just be plugged or unplugged if the user may want to upgrade or downgrade their computer hardware. It was in the ninety’s when Intel first introduced the very first PCI bus or what is known as the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus. This stands as the hybrid of sorts between ISA and VL Bus. It gives admittance to system memory for connected devices. In order for it to fully operate, it will need a bridge to connect to the front side bus and thus to the CPU or the central processing unit. This is the physical connection that actually connects the processor to most of the other components in the user’s computer. The connections included are the main memory or RAM, hard drives and the PCI slots. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ACCES LPCI-COM-8SM errors before installing any driver updates.
