Quatech's RS-422/485 serial boards are available with either two or four ports. The ports are jumper configurable for either RS-422 or RS-485 in any combination for full and half duplex networks. PCI registers are properly implemented to assure that Plug-and-Play works reliably, and that the board will not cause PCI bus conflicts. The boards are implemented with 16750 UARTs containing 64-byte FIFOs. They use a clock multiplying feature allowing them to achieve data rates as high as 921.6 kbps.

To maintain maximum signal integrity, Quatech uses a four-layer board design. But, for even more protection in industrial environments, an optional surge suppression package is available. This "IND" option applies a surge suppressor to each line that is capable of sustaining up to 40A peak, 8 x 20µs transient surges, a clamping voltage of 15.5V and a peak energy dissipation of 0.1 Joules. (Note that implementing the IND option restricts the board's speed to 115.2 kbps.)
