MKS serial communication modules support a variety of communication standards, to interface any type of serial device with the MKS platform. Serial modules support 9-pin D-Sub digital communication, including RS232, RS422/RS485 (4-wire), and RS485 (2-wire). The serial module has a direct 1:1 pin mapping to industry standard devices, so connecting to these devices are fully powered and controlled through the serial slice. Each communication module supports integrating 4 connectors to support serial compatible devices.
These modules are part of the MKS Automation Platform that provides a modular, scalable and configurable solution to meet your automation and control requirements. Designed to provide a complete automation solution to improve operational and productivity efficiencies, the Automation Platform enables faster implementations, provides lowest total cost of ownership, and improves utilization of existing tools and assets.
