 What is a RS 232 Port?

It is a serial that allows the sending of data one after the other and simultaneously. It has several meanings (serial port, COM port, communications port and RS-232 port – Recommended Standard -232-), but all lead to the same thing.

As for the rs232 port characteristics, it is a 9-pin semi-trapezoidal connector (although there are some devices with 25 pins, male, and it is usually accompani by an adapter to be used with 9-pin connectors) that allows the transmission of data from a device external to our computer, that is why it is called a port.

The rs-232 serial port was design to print documents at distances of up to 15 meters and speeds as low as 20 Kbps. However, higher rates were later used with good results.

This interface works with asynchronous and synchronous communication and a simplex, half-duplex or full-duplex channel. In the case of a simplex type channel, the data travels only in one direction. And in half-duplex, they can do it in both directions but only in a limited period. Finally, data can move in both directions simultaneously in a full-duplex channel.

Currently, RS232 serial ports are being replaced by  USB ports.

To configure the rs232 port, it is recommend to turn off and restart the computer to connect and disconnect the connector.

Each port allows a single device to be connect.
