The BB-485LDRC9 is an optically isolated RS-232 to RS-422/485 converter. RS-232 signals interface through a DB9 female connector or a terminal block. RS-422/485 signals and power inputs connect to the terminal block. Terminal blocks are arranged to allow easy wiring inside a control panel. <br /> <br /> Built-in Automatic Send Data Control circuitry allows quick set-up and eliminates the need for external software drivers to control handshake signals. The converter operates on externally sourced 10-30 VDC power. <br /> <br /> Optically isolated data lines (2,000 V on input/output) with 500W surge suppression ensure that connected equipment is protected even in the harshest environments. DIN rail mount design snaps on standard 35mm rail and a small form factor fits neatly into tight cabinets. <br /> <br /> The BB-485LDRC9 is ideal for critical industrial communications, factory automation, in-cabinet conversion, warehouse automation, security, and many other applications.
