DGT Serial Tournament e-Boards
The difference between USB-, and Bluetooth e-Boards and DGT Serial Tournament e-Boards, is that the tournament boards can be connected together in large quantities in a serial network for a tournament set-up. They connect to the computer through cables or by using the wireless DGT Caïssa System.
When using cable connections, strings of serial e-Boards are connected to the serial port of the computer (or to a USB port using the Serial-to-USB Converter Cable that is included with the connection materials). Contrary to USB- and Bluetooth boards the serial board are not meant for individual use.
Serial e-Boards are available in Walnut, Rosewood or Wengé. All DGT electronic chess pieces sets are compatible. Walnut e-Boards do not have letters and numbers (indices) along the edge of the board. Only the Rosewood and Wengé e-Boards have these indices.
