Product Name(s): Multi-port System Interface
Product Description: The SINC/3-3000 provides communication access to the ASI controller network from a host computer and/or modem. A clock comes with the SINC/3-3000 and the time can be broadcast on the network to synchronize time on networks of controllers. The SINC/3-3000 has (2) EIA-232 ports for direct or modem access and (3) EIA-485 ports for system and local busses. The SINC/3 communicates using ASI communication protocol at speeds up to 19,200 kbps. It also allows networks operating at different speeds to be linked by acting as a baud rate buffer between the two networks.
Product Application(s): The SINC/3-3000 provides communication access between controller network and operator workstations. The functions of the SINC/3-3000 are determined by the configuration of the EEPROM memory. It is configured using Windows based ASI configuration software.
