MOXA's TCC-82 Provides Better Protection for Your RS-232 Connection

Taipei, Taiwan, May 4, 2006-MOXA Technologies is pleased to present a new serial port powered 4-channel RS-232 optical isolator . TCC-82 is a signal isolator that provides bi-directional serial communication with full electrical isolation between two RS-232 devices.


This compact sized isolator isolates both sides of the connection optically to provide perfect protection from lightning surges, accidental high voltage shorts, and ground loops. The built-in, wide-range optocouplers are tested to ensure that they can withstand more than 4 KV rms input to output for 1 minute. By supporting this feature, TCC-82 not only meets the requirements for general data communications, but also the high standard needed for industrial automation and medical applications. Moreover, TCC-82 protects the RTS/CTS handshake lines on its two D-type connectors. TCC-82 also supports power-over-serial, which eliminates the need for an external power supply.
