Auto-485 RS-232 to RS-485 Converter complete with Enclosure

This RS232-to-RS485 converter supports both RTS-controlled turnaround and automatic turnaround of the transceiver buffer. Comes as an OEM circuit board, but an optional extruded aluminum enclosure is also available. The following are some possible applications:

  • For programming an M-series PLC via its RS485 port so that its RS232 port can be freed for connecting to other devices such as HMI, SCADA, barcode scanner, smart card readers, etc.
  • For linking as many as 240 PLCs via RS485 multi-drop bus to a single PC for local programming or remote programming / monitoring via the Internet.
  • To transparently convert the PLC's RS485 port into an additional RS232 port for interfacing to third party RS232 devices. This is made possible by the auto-turnaround features built into the adapter.


Features

  • Interfaces between RS-232 to RS-485
  • Supports RTS controlled or automatic turnaound of buffer
  • Allows for linking of up to 240 plcs via RS485
