PCI Multi I/O Controller Card work for the rs485 VFD?
« on: July 10, 2013, 05:40:04 PM »
so can this board be used to run the VFD from mach3 and the rs485?
- Full compliant with PCI express base specification, renision 1.0a
 - PCIe multi function peripheral controller with x1 lane interface
 - Support for D1,D2,D3hot and D3cold
 - Support PCIe power management

Serial Port:
- 16c450/550/extended 550 compatible UARTs
 - Supports RS232, RS485&RS422 modes
 - Bi-directional speed from 50 bps to 16Mbps/port
 - Full serial modem control
 - Supports hardware, software flow control
 - 5,6,7.8 and 9-bit serial format support
 - Custom BAUD rates supported with external clock or by programming internal PLL
 - On chip 256 byte depth FIFOs in transmit. Receive path of each serial port
 - Supports remote wakeup and power management features
 - Serial port transceiver shutdown support
 - Support slow IrDA on all serial ports

some how I would have to find the  2 pins (RS+RS-) that the VFD wants to run off?

nice! I found a picture of the db9 and wired the I/O board to VFD like it shows and now I have the plug in working. now I just have to get my settings right I think.

this is with mach 3 turn and a  Huanyang VFD. plug in below....
#2 is the rs- and the #3 is the rs+ on the vfd. this is with the cables plugged in just like the pics above. they are NOT 1 way only plugs.
