Did the Altivar 16 have serial communications capability?

A communication module, part number VW3-A16303, was available for the ATV16 product line.  The device plugged into the keypad port and provided the functionality of a display and a PCMCIA slot (resting on the right side of the drive).  

A PCMCIA Network card was then plugged it into the carrier and the card was wired to the network.  Protocols supported included  UNITEL, Modbus and JBus (via part number VW3A66301) or FIPIO (via TSX FPV16 V6M or TSX FPPP 01).

The communication carrier was never commercialized in the United States.
