    Code-Operated Switch II (COS II)


    Quick Facts

  • This flexible switch links your PC to eight serial devices.
  • Call for custom orders!
  • Control up to eight serial devices from your PC—any speed, any word structure.

  • Further Details

  • Individual port selection for word size, flow control, speed, parity, and DCE/DTE operation.
  • Four ports become eight with the optional expansion board.
  • 8 KB buffer for speed and word-format conversion; buffer downshifts data for slower devices.

    If you thought the COS II was flexible before, get ready to consider even more possibilities! The standard COS II enables you to control up to eight serial devices from one PC. Customizing the COS II will enable you to do this and more. To discuss your specific needs, contact our FREE Tech Support.

    The COS II makes code-operated switching possible for diverse combinations of serial devices. You can mix plotters, laser printers, modems, and more—and configure each port independently! As it switches, the COS II reconciles differences in word size, speed, flow control, and parity. An expansion board, available separately, doubles the maximum number of devices to eight. Remember, we can customize the COS II for you!

  • 4-Port Expansion Board for COS-II (SW591C)
  • Rackmount Bracket (TL486)
