2) CTS: Clear to Send
CTS stands for Clear to Send. It is a flow control signal or mechanism in RS-232 standard. It indicates that a line or device is ready for data transmission e.g. ready to move. CTS signal is sent in response to RTS (Request of Send) flow control signal. The RTS signal is sent by the sending device to tell the receiving end to get ready to receive or set its CTS line when it is ready. When the receiving end is ready to receive, it sends the CTS signal to tell the other end to send the data. Thus, CTS and RTS allow the receiver and the transmitter to alert each other before initiating the data transmission.
