The AccelePort Xem asynchronous system is an expandable, modular and intelligent serial communication solution designed specifically for small to mid-size multiuser installations. This product is especially well-suited for applications that are expected to start small and grow over time to as many as 64 ports.
This flexible system is a fast, reliable way to connect terminals, printers, modems, instruments and other serial peripheral devices.
The AccelePort Xem system features a host adapter card with an on-board RISC-based processor that delivers up to 115.2 Kbps performance per port. The system also includes a compact Digi PORTS module that provides access to 16 serial ports. PORTS modules can also be Ethernet-enabled using the PortServer II.
The Xem Concentrator has a maximum of 64 ports. Digi does not sell a 64-port concentrator. If you want 64-ports, then you need to daisy chain multiple concentrators together. For example, you can daisy chain four 16-port concentrators to make a 64-port concentrator. Each daisy chain needs one host adapter card.
Also, the concentrators can only be daisy-chained if the cable length is within 10 feet. This means that any cables over 10 feet long cannot be used if you want to daisy chain these concentrators.
