Tri-M TCB1000 - PC104 CAN, Serial & Modem Socket Module

Dual CANbus, Five Serial Ports & Two MultiTech Universal Sockets


Tri-M's TCB1000 series is a new and innovative communication board. This high density design integrates CANbus controllers, serial ports, and wired/wireless functionality into a single board solution. The TCB1000 significantly reduces the size, weight, and cost of embedded solutions while increasing performance and functionality for M2M, Telematics, and data logging applications.

Incorporating dual isolated CANbus controllers, two MultiTech compatible universal sockets, four isolated RS-232 serial ports, and one isolated RS-485 serial port the TCB1000 is truly a versatile, all-in-one communication solution. Its integrated design offers system builders unprecedented versatility, allowing them to design with only one board while offering their end users any number of communication configurations. Further improving the solution's flexibility, build options are available for 'lighter' versions which incorporate only the particular features required for more specialized applications.

All Tri-M products are built for outstanding performance and reliability in harsh environments. The same rugged design features are used in the TCB to make it well suited for operating in harsh environments where, temperature, shock and vibration are factors.
