Attention: There are two options for how the JrMX powers up.  For typical PC applications, customers will want the JrMX to power up only when the reset button is pushed.  However, for embedded or 24 hour per day applications, customers will prefer the auto power on feature. This version does not have a reset switch and will always reboot whenever power is restored. Both versions are equally priced, so please mention which version you want when you order.

Note: A special cable is required to use the second RS232 port for 2 x RS232 models. Write for details and ordering information.
