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.
- 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
