Convert, extend transmission distance or isolate serial data. These small devices convert between RS-232 and RS-422/485 protocols. Options include port or self powered, screw terminals, DB9 or DB25 connectors, isolation and LEDs to indicate data flow. The converters, extenders and isolators function as an extension of the computers built-in serial ports, so no software drivers are necessary. Surge protectors protect data lines from transient voltage spikes which are common in industrial environments.
Serial converters provide protocol conversion between RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 data streams. Available with screw terminals, DB9 or DB25 connectors, isolation and data flow LEDs.
Extenders allow the distance restrictions of serial data signals to be eliminated. Signals can be extended up to 1000 metres via twisted pair CAT5 cabling.
Isolators provide an optical barrier preventing high voltage transients from destroying communications equipment. Repeaters increase the number of possible nodes that can be connected to a network.
