We assume that the serial line processes similar but non-identical parts so that the set-up time for switching between two different parts is negligible.
I/O can be controlled over Modbus/TCP from any SCADA system, independently of the serial line

For serial line, simple circuit is also required which uses several Zener diodes and a transistor.
The ability for AIDA-NG to handle an almost unlimited number of connections via various serial lines, or LAN, further confirms its capability.
8 certainly satisfies musically and intellectually (though its spiritual qualities might be less obvious) and is an extremely fine, tersely muscular work that, for a construction on 12-tone serial lines, falls remarkably easily on the ear.
The designers have explored fiber-optic and high-speed serial lines to resolve this -- this is why the PMC-700 now has the ability to output digital data, which can be routed through optical or serial lines.
