The CP-102E and low profile CP-102EL are 2-port PCI Express boards designed for POS and ATM applications. Moxa’s PCI Express boards are a top choice of industrial automation engineers and system integrators, particularly since the boards support many different operating systems, including Windows and Linux. The CP-102E/EL’s 2 RS-232 serial ports support a super fast 921.6 kbps baudrate, and provide full modem control signals to ensure compatibility with a wide range of serial peripherals. In addition, the boards’ x1 classification allows them to be installed in any PCI Express slot.

Features and Benefits 

  • PCI Express x1 compliant
  • 921.6 kbps maximum baudrate for super fast data transmission
  • 128-byte FIFO and on-chip H/W, S/W flow control
  • Low profile form factor fits small-sized PCs
  • Drivers provided for a broad selection of operating systems, including the latest Windows and Linux

    Smaller Form Factor

    The CP-102EL is a low profile board that is compatible with any PCI Express slot. The CP-102EL board only requires a 3.3 VDC power supply, which means that the board fits any host computer, ranging from shoebox to standard-sized PCs.


    Drivers Provided for Windows and Linux

    Moxa continues to support a wide variety of operating systems, and the CP-102E/EL boards are no exception. Reliable Windows COM and Linux TTY drivers are provided for all Moxa boards, and other operating systems, such as WEPOS, are also supported for embedded integration applications.
