    Async RS-232/RS-485 Interface Converter DB9/Female to Terminal


Highlights

    Product features:
    • Use point-to-point or multipoint.
    • Operate in half- or full-duplex over two or four wires.
    • Work with or without transmit echo.
    • The converters' RS-232 side has a DB25 or DB9 male or female connector configured as DCE.
    • The converters' RS-485 side has a male or female DB25 or DB9 connector, or a terminal block.
    • If your RS-232 side uses a DB25 connector, choose from three converters: IC1476A-F-US, IC1477A-M-US, and IC1478A-F.
    • If your RS-232 side uses a DB9 connector, choose between the IC1620A-F and the IC1625A-F. Both convert unbalanced RS-232 signals to balanced half-duplex RS-485 signals.

    If the RS-232 side uses DB25 pinning:

    Our IC1476A-F-US converts unbalanced, full-duplex RS-232 signals to balanced half- or full-duplex RS-485 signals. It uses two user-selectable methods to enable the RS-485 driver, either by toggling Request to Send (Pin 4) of the RS-232 side or by sensing the data on the Transmit data (Pin 2) of the RS-232 side automatically. By removing both sets of jumpers, you can constantly enable the RS-485 driver and receiver. In other words, it can act like an RS-422 converter, unlike the other converters here, which use data to control the RS-485 transmitter.

    The IC1477A-M-US provides the same conversion of RS-232 signals. If the peripheral youre connecting to operates on the RS-485 signal, you only need one IC1477A-M-US converter. But if the transmitting and receiving equipment only use RS-232, two converters are required, one at each end of the line.

    The IC1478A-F is like the IC1476A-F-US, except that its for 2-wire operation and its RS-485 connector is a DB25 male instead of a terminal block.

    If the RS-232 side uses DB9 pinning:

    The IC1620A-F and IC1625A-F feature a DB9 female connector on the RS-232 side, and either a terminal block or DB9 female on the RS-485 side. They convert your unbalanced RS-232 signals to balanced half-duplex RS-485 signals.

At a Glance

    • Transmit data up to 115 kbps or at distancesup to 4000 ft.
    • Operates in point to point or multipoint applications.
    • 2-wire operation half-duplex only.
    • Async (data leads) only.
    • Up to 32 RS485 devices can be attached to create a large multi-drop network.
    • The RS485 driver is automatically enabled during each spacing state on the RS232 side.

Overview

    • Operates in half-duplex over two wires.
    • Works with or without transmit "echo."
    • The converter's RS-232 side has a DB9 female connector configured as DCE.
    • The converter's RS-485 side has a terminal block.
    • Also available in four other configurations. See Similar Products.
      The Async RS-232 to RS-485 Interface Bidirectional Converter, DB9 Female to Terminal Block features a DB9 female connector on the RS-232 side, and a terminal block on the RS-485 side. It converts your unbalanced RS-232 signals to balanced half-duplex RS-485 signals.
