The ACCES PCI-422/485-2 is a board used in serial. This device is used with computer buses that are PCI based. This device is not synchronous and it is designed to have two ports, which are used in its serial communication processes. This device has a length that measures 165 millimeters. It is very convenient as it is easy to install and it can be installed in any computer from the IBM Company or any other computer that is compatible. Each of the two slots has the ability to include voltage that is biased. In addition, the ports support two transmission and reception procedures. These two are the RS-422 and the RS-458 modes which are balanced. Still, these two have to be of the PCI-COM2s type for them to operate effectively. When using the windows platform, this device operates the RS-485 driver automatically. However, this device is only compatible with 3.3 V and PCI-X, and can only operate under them.
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
The ACCES PCI-422/485-2 is incorporated with UART that is of the 16550 type. It is also fitted with FIFO buffers. These buffers are 16 byte buffers. The device operates on relatively high baud rates. It operates at a maximum baud rate of 460,800 baud. This device has an advantage over other conventional interface devices in that it does not need a base address to set or an IRQ switch that requires setting. This is due to its base address that is not volatile, but is programmable. These two features make installation of this device to be easy. This device is usually identified as a standard COM port when using the windows platform. It requires low power during its operations. This device can work even with power that is as low as 5VDC at a typical 80 mA, with all the out puts open. In addition, it operates at a relatively high speed that improves its efficiency. It has the ability to operate for up to 921.6 k. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ACCES PCI-422/485-2 errors before installing any driver updates.
