I use a product called Intellicon from Connecttech ( They are distributed in the US by EMJ ( It is an intelligent card that comes in 2,4 or 8 port version with selectable media modules
(RS-232,422,485, current loop). I believe they have several varieties of the card that support various types of UARTs --some blazing fast.
