LYNX-UART-XB RS232 Module

RS232 Connectivity for Tethered Drones

The LYNX-UART-XB is an expansion board for the LYNX-OEM-3P that adds support for two channels of RS232. Seamlessly interface with remote RS232 hardware with a physical device or virtual serial drivers. Remote serial ports can be accessed through TCP, UDP, Telnet or serial port drivers. Alternatively, through port binding, two LYNX-UART-XBs may be used to form a seamless point to point RS232 connection that is completely transparent to hardware and software.

Applications:

  • Aerostats
  • Tethered UAVs
  • Micro Gimbals
  • Auto Pilots
  • Remotely Operated Vehicles
  • Submersibles
  • Telerobotics
  • Pipe Inspection
