Serial RS232 to #2 RS485/RS422 Industrial Isolated HUB


IP Electronix PH232T485Y12 is a Bi-Directional Serial RS232 to 4 RS485/RS422 HUB that provides #2 RS485/RS422 ports from one single RS232 port that converts RxD & TxD signals of RS232 standard to differential (Data+ & Data-) signals of RS485 standard and (RX+, RX- & TX+, TX-) signals of RS422 standard at a same time. It works with Baud-Rate from 300bps to 230400bps. Using this device, you can connect a RS232 line, to 2 different devices which have RS485 or RS422 ports.

Since RS485 is a Half-Duplex standard, switching between Transmit and Receive is done automatically and further signals (such as RTS) are not required. PH232T485Y12 supports Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multi Point Party Line network topologies.

There are 3kV Optical and Electrical insulations have between RS232 and RS485/RS422 sides, thus using this device in the RS485/RS422 line, can be very effective in eliminating electrically and electromagnetically noises.

Protection against Surge, ESD and EMI is considered in its design, so, PH232T485Y12 is good for industrial usage and is useful for Industrial Automation, Telecommunications, SCADA Systems, DCS Systems and …
