The IntelliPort II is a line of high-speed multi-port asynchronous communications products. The IntelliPort II line lets you connect nearly any serial device to a system, including:

  • Terminals
  • Printers and plotters
  • Modems
  • Point-of-sale (POS) devices, including cash registers
  • Data collection devices, including bar code readers
  • Industrial devices with RS-232 interfaces

IntelliPort II products can operate at sustained data rates of up to 115,200 bps and are available for ISA (AT-compatible), EISA, and Micro Channel (MC) bus architectures. The standard IntelliPort II products support 4, 8, or 16 ports, and are not expandable. The IntelliPort II EXpandable supports from 8 to 64 ports, expandable in multiples of 8 or 16 with a maximum of four expansion modules per concentrator.

The IntelliPort II EXpandable is a scalable multi-port system that is designed for both intermediate and large-scale applications. Its modular design lets you purchase the capacity you need now, then add more ports (in multiples of 8 or 16) in the future. Each controller supports from 8 to 64 serial devices.

The IntelliPort II EXpandable products consist of the following:

  • An intelligent, high-performance communications controller (adapter). Controllers are available for ISA (AT-compatible), EISA, and Micro Channel architectures.
  • One to four expansion modules. An expansion module is an intelligent I/O
  • manager that provides 8 or 16 RS-232 serial connections.

The Computone IntelliPort-IIEX MC-CEX (EXpandable) board is essentially similar to the IntelliPort-II MC-8 host controller card. It has a tri-color LED which blinks yellow on power up and green during normal operation. On the Micro Channel version of the board, the LED is mounted inside near the bracket.

The original IntelliCom part number is 1-11056, the earlier Computone part number is 3-01195. The Computone part number for the ASIC style board is 3-01675.
