RS-232 is an interface standard for serial data communication established by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA). It is formally known as EIA-RS-232 (or simply 232, RS232). Widely employed for connecting computer peripherals that use serial interfaces, RS-232 operates through single-ended transmission, utilizing a signal line (TX for transmission) and a receive line (RX for reception). In contrast to RS-485, RS-232 utilizes non-differential signals, where data values are represented by voltages relative to ground. This characteristic makes RS-232 more susceptible to electromagnetic interference and limits its transmission distance.

While RS-232 was once a standard interface for communication between personal computers and various devices, it has gradually been replaced in some applications due to limitations such as shorter transmission distances, restricted data rates, and vulnerability to electromagnetic interference. Despite this, RS-232 continues to find use in specific applications, with some devices and instruments still supporting the RS-232 interface.
