Rs-232 meaning

(Recommended Standard-232) A TIA/EIA standard for serial transmission. Although employed for numerous other purposes, the RS-232 serial port was widely used on earlier personal computers prior to USB (see serial port). The RS-232 cable limitation of 50 feet can be extended to several hundred feet with high-quality cable.Although RS-232 defines the signals for 25 lines, many applications use less than a dozen, which is why both DB-25 and DB-9 connectors are used. RS-232 transmits positive voltage for a 0 and a negative voltage for a 1. In 1984, RS-232 was officially renamed TIA/EIA-232-E.
