I was routing through my PC bits box today and found a card which I do not recognise.

It has CARD ASM-SDLC ADAPTER printed on it and the connecter looks like a 25-pin COM port.

So.. what is it? What is it for?

An SLDC card is a dedicated RS-485 interface card which emulates the IBM Asynchronous Data Link Control bus. It combines the function of an SDL controller and DCA interface card. It can drive any RS-232 devices via RS-485 line, without any protocol concerns that normal RS-485 interface cards may have.
