Industrial Micro Systems - 4 Line Communications Controller
The Industrial Micro Systems Model 480 four line Asynchronous Communication Controller (ACC) interfaced four RS-232C line to the Series 5000 and 8000 IMS Systems.

4 Lime Communications Controller

The 480 unfortunately required 32 I/O address to transfer control and data information between the 480 Controller and CPU.  Control is accomplished by the Western Digital WD8250 Asynchronous Communication Element (ACE).  The Model 480 controller requires one slot in the S-100 bus.  Each serial port is brought to a 3M 26 pin header.  The RS-232-C ports are designed as Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) to connect directly to modems.  To connect to terminals the RS-232 cable wires must be scrambled for Terminal to Terminal connection.
