SystemBase CS-428/9AT - ISO
Isolated Serial Converter
Optical Isolated RS232 Converter
CS-428/9AT ISO converts RS232 signals to RS422 or RS485 with optical isolation protection. It is a fast and efficient solution to overcome distant limitations of RS232 or for connecting to industrial devices with an RS422-RS485 interface.
- 2.5KV high performance Optical Isolation
- Communicates up to 1.2Km
- Fully compatible with PC serial COM ports
- Requires the use of external DC power supply (7~12V)
- Support Max 230.4Kbps transfer speed
- Communication status can be monitored through LEDs
- DIP Switch for RS422/485 mode
- Female DB9 Connector (RS232) and 5 Pin Terminal Block (RS422/485)
- Max. 10 Device Connectivity for RS422 Multi-Drop Mode
- Max. 32 Device Connectivity for RS485 Mode
The CS-428/9AT ISO Opto-Isolation protects up to DC 2.5KV between RS232 and RS422, RS485 sides. Opto-Isolation perfectly isolates two endpoints so devices are protected from unfavourable electrical conditions such as ground potential differences, lightning and line interference. This results in more stable and reliable communications.
What is Isolation?
When an electrical shock caused by power or ground is passed on to the system it can cause severe, if not irrecoverable damage. This can be prevented by using Opto-Isolation. In addition, isolation has other benefits by reducing problems caused by signal distortion and signal line impedance matching.
Auto RTS Control (Auto Toggling)
The CS-428/9AT ISO has a built-in hardware feature that performs automatic toggling to prevent devices from sending data simultaneously. This operation is crucial when multiple devices are connected to prevent electrical collisions that lead to errors and unstable communications.
No additional software is required for operation. With an easily accessible DIP switch you can configure the interface for RS422 or RS485. The CS-428/9AT ISO has high performance 2.5KV Opto-Isolation to protect your equipment. The terminal block and DB9 connector make it simple to physically connect.
