    Buffered Data Broadcast Unit


    Quick Facts

  • Broadcasts data to four printers or terminals without delay.
  • Add the optional four-port expansion card (TL160-C) to broadcast to eight.
  • Buffers data individually for each port.
  • Guaranteed for life!

  • Further Details

  • Add 32 KB Memory Expansion (TL484) and keep data on slower devices moving.
  • Broadcasts async RS-232 data simultaneously to multiple terminals or printers.
  • Add 32 KB Memory Expansion (TL484) and keep data on slower devices moving.
  • Broadcasts async RS-232 data simultaneously to multiple terminals or printers.
  • Dynamically allocates memory.
  • All ports are DTE/DCE switch selectable.
  • Configure each port individually.

  • This broadcast unit features an internal buffer that's dynamically allocated to its individual ports, so your connected printers and other devices receive data continuously—regardless of their speeds.

    Broadcast async RS-232 data to four terminals or printers at the same time with the BLACK BOX® Buffered Data Broadcast Unit.

    The broadcast unit features dynamic allocation, so a varying amount of buffer is given to each port as it needs it, instead of having a set size of buffer for each port.

    For expanded capacity, specify the 32 KB Memory Expansion (TL484) when you order. It helps keep data moving—even with a slow printer or terminal. More memory goes to the slower port, so the host continues to transmit and the faster units continue to receive data.

    This dynamic memory allocation works in both directions, too. For example, if a terminal sends data to the host, data from other terminals is sent to the buffer and queued. When the first terminal ends its transmission, the unit pulls the remaining information in order from the buffer.

    The Buffered Data Broadcast Unit features four user channels. To expand channel capacity to eight, order the 4-Port Expansion Card (TL160-C).
