Mfr Part #: TL482A-R3
MSRP: $459.95Say good-bye to separate consoles for intelligent async devices, including mainframes, data PBXs, network management systems, data loggers, data concentrators, and intelligent test-data sets/analyzers. Thanks to the Terminal Eliminator Plus (TEP), one terminal can perform the work of many. The standard TEP supports four input devices and one output device. It also features 32K of RAM (approximately 31K is devoted to buffering). You can expand the TEP with a 4-Port Expansion Board that boosts the number of slave devices to eight. In addition, an optional 32K-Memory Expansion can double the device's memory to 64 KB.
If your application calls for more than eight slave ports, you can cascade multiple devices simply by running the slave port of one unit to the master port of another. This cascading method gives you three layers of TEPs from a main TEP - for a maximum of 4096 slave ports. The TEP lets you clearly identify lines of data with user-programmable labels, too. A variety of format options makes it easy to distinguish data from different devices on the screen.
