The PEX2S952PW 2-Port PCI Express Serial Card (with Power Output) turns a PCI Express slot into 2 RS232 (DB9) serial connections and enables compatible devices to draw power from the serial ports. Suitable for many RS232-powered serial applications, this PCIe serial card offers a selectable 5V or 12V power option capable of power output using pin 1, 4, 8 or 9, allowing you to configure the card to suit the requirements of your powered RS232 devices. A flexible solution for adding serial ports to small form factor or full-sized systems, the 2-port serial card includes both low and full profile brackets. To ensure maximum performance, the serial card is based on a native single chip design, that allows you to harness the full capability of PCI Express (PCIe) - providing optimum reliability and speed while reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional (bridge chip) serial cards. Backed by a StarTech.com Lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support. Selectable 5/12V power output on one of four different pins provides the flexibility needed to connect nearly any powered serial device. Native single-chip, single lane PCI Express architecture offers increased speeds and reduces CPU load by up to 48% compared to PCI Express cards that utilize a bridge chip design.
