Interface

Interfaces as they apply to electrical engineering and automation describe the connection point shared by two assemblies, devices, or communications systems

The unit on one side of the interface is connected to the one on the other side via interface cables, which are used to exchange data and control signals.

The type of data transmission in question dictates whether parallel (IEEE 488) or serial (RS232, RS485) interfaces are required with respect to transmission speeds and distances.
