Ethernet, GPIB and USB to Serial Interface Board

ICS's Model 9006 is a multi-interface to serial board that adds Ethernet, GPIB and USB interfaces to serial devices or older instruments. Use with an embedded processor board to create smart instruments with multiple interfaces.

The 9006's Ethernet port is VXI-11 compatible for easy control by the following computer systems without special drivers:

LINUX, UNIX, SunOS, MAC OS X, HP-UX, IBM-AIX and Windows 2K or later Windows systems.

VXI-11 is one of the 9006's Ethernet protocols. ICS Electronics is the premier VXI-11 device supplier with 100% VXI-11 compliance in every product. See our extensive Application Notes or download our VXI-11 Tutorial and the VXI-11 Specification for more information about the VXI-11 Standard.
