View Glossary Index

In telecommunications, RS-232 is a standard for serial communication transmission of data. It formally defines the signals connecting between a DTE (data terminal equipment) such as a computer terminal, and a DCE (data circuit-terminating equipment, originally defined as data communication equipment), such as a modem. The RS-232 standard is commonly used in computer serial ports. The standard defines the electrical characteristics and timing of signals, the meaning of signals, and the physical size and pinout of connectors. The current version of the standard is TIA-232-F Interface Between Data Terminal Equipment and Data Circuit-Terminating Equipment Employing Serial Binary Data Interchange, issued in 1997.

Sensors are simple, why are they so complicated to connect?

Sensors all have a basic function of measuring something, and they have to output that data in some computer readable format. This is the point where there are so many options and limitations but I will call them "interfaces". The most popular interfaces are digital, analog voltage, analog current, 1-Wire, RS232, RS485, CAN bus, and Bluetooth/ANT. Some of these interfaces can support multiple sensors per connector by daisy chaining or unique...

MCG-101

An intelligent PBX solution using Iridium to operate as a telephone, Internet portal, GPS device and SMS terminal.

The MCG-101 provides the most powerful and versatile Iridium communications system to offices, remote locations, aircraft, and maritime. The system presents an intelligent solution using the Iridium satellite network to operate as a universal communications hub, low-bandwidth internet gateway, and intelligent GPS device, allowing you to send and receive data and voice, and also connect to other devices through RS232 and ethernet.

The MCG-101 was designed and built using 100% digital technology. This enables the system to provide clear, true to life audio, and eliminates any internal echo problems. For external interface portions of the system, such an analog POTS telephone, echo cancellation is performed by a hardware echo canceler.

The MCG-101 can be used in a number of scenarios for both stationary and mobile needs, from enabling remote command posts, providing redundant communications infrastructure for operations bases, to enabling voice and data communications within vehicles or vessels, regardless of proximity to standard systems and telecom towers.
