The Blue Heat/PCI Port 8 serial card device employs the convenience of onboard power, thus eliminating high baud rates. This alleviates lack of power facility. However, the distribution and development of this device has been discontinued because of EOL, a critical component used in its production. The device features a rapid data transfer rate of up to 1382.4 Kbps, and eight asynchronous RS-232 ports. This is recommended as an industrial strength solution. This is used mostly for applications that require powered serial ports for magnetic card readers, barcode scanners, weighing scales and serial peripherals which do not require power. This is recommended for communication and control of industrial automation equipment. The device also produces high performance UARTs control on each port. A 16C654 UART controls each port and provides 64 bytes of transmit and receive FIFO buffers.
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 Blue Heat/PCI Port 8 serial card device also employs multi-strike surge protection on all signals and all ports. The device has a plug and play feature for easier installation. This means users will not have to set DIP switches or jumpers. The device also comes with a comprehensive manual. The device has an automatic flow control. It also extends flexibility due to the on-board RJ-11 connectors for six ports, and male DB-9 connectors and/or cables for two ports. It also installs very easy and adapts to Windows operating systems. No DIP switches or jumpers to set, simply plug and play. Notable benefits include high speed transfers, high performance communications, hardware flexibility, software compatibility, ease of operation, easy to understand diagnostics tools and a dependable warranty and service by the manufacturer, Connect Tech, an ISO 9001 registered company.
