Learn how to set up, install, and communicate using a groov EPIC serial I/O module.

Many industrial automation applications require communication between the controller and multiple serial devices. The GRV-CSERI-4 module provides four independent and isolated serial ports for this purpose. Each port is software configurable to communicate with RS-232 or RS-485 (half duplex or full duplex) serial devices.

Applications Engineer Ben Orchard is back in this latest video to give you step-by-step instructions on how to start communication between your serial devices and the groov EPIC serial I/O module.
