Interfacing Multi-Mode Terminal Units

Top  Previous  Next

If you intend using the multimode capabilities in TurboLog 4, then you will need to interface your Terminal Unit (TU) to TurboLog 4. The TU requires a separate serial port apart from that used by the packet controller. If your PC does not provide enough serial ports you will need to apply a comport extender. These devices are also available for USB-ports, e.g. to extend one USB-port into 4 or even 8 RS-232 serial ports.

 

You should be able to use any TU on the market, as the commands and control characters used are fully definable in the multimode setup scripts.
