The PCM-3202I allows direct data transfer between master and slaves without any operations in between. This customized solution saves wires, covers long distances and supports high-speed, real-time communications. The PCM-3202I supports transfer rates up to 20 Mbps and a maximum communication of up to 100 meters, creating a high-speed network.
