The FarSync Flex USB adapter has been developed to provide high performance sync and async communications support for Linux and Windows systems with multiple line signaling modes.
The FarSync Flex USB adapter is a high quality synchronous solution for business, government and military applications, using the FarSite customisable communications controller it has been developed to provide a high performance, neat, durable and versatile connectivity for Linux and Windows systems.
The bus powered USB adapter will support a synchronous line at speeds of up to 3 Mbits/s continuous. The highly flexible universal network connector supports RS232, X.21, RS530 (RS422 signaling), RS449 , RS485 and V.35 network interfaces.
The adapter can support the host computer’s TCP/IP protocol stack or an Application can be written to use the low level API for a variety of different functions. The FarSync Flex SDK provides a Developers Toolkit for the product.
The Flex can be used for line monitoring with the addition of a special Monitor cable. A monitoring application is included. The monitoring support is also compatible with Wireshark.
For DAB connections the FarSync Flex supports ETI (NI, V.11) and STI (PI, V.11).
The intelligent FarSync Flex is designed for reliability, high performance and flexibility. The adapter uses a fast ARM processor with Flash and RAM for the onboard code.
The multi function line drivers available on both ports support X.21 (V.11), V.35, RS232 (V.24, X.21bis), RS530 (EIA530, RS422), RS449 and RS485 2 and 4 wire network interfaces, all soft configurable and ESD protected from static charges.
Sync line speeds up to 3 Mbits/s, Async line speeds up to 115.2 Kbits/s
USB 2.0 high-speed mode (480mb/s), USB 3 and USB 1.1 compatible
