  • Description

    Industrial Opto-Isolated RS-232 Repeater


    Quick Facts

  • A heavy-duty, industrial-strength repeater.
  • Doubles the allowable range of RS-232 transmissions up to 100 feet (30.4 m).
  • Rugged, IP30-rated metal case for panel mounting.

  • Further Details

  • Tolerates temperatures ranging from -30 to +185º F (-40 to +85º C).
  • 2G shock and 3G vibration protection.
  • Boasts 2-kV triple isolation for safeguarding data and equipment.
  • Data rates up to 115.2 kbps.
  • Modbus® and ASCII/RTU compatible.
  • DIN rail mountable with optional adapter.

    This heavy-duty Industrial Opto-Isolated RS-232 Repeater doubles the maximum allowable distance permitted under the RS-232 specification for longer serial transmissions.

    Encased in an IP30-rated enclosure, the repeater's been put through some of the most exacting tests in the industry. The high-grade repeater meets the requirements of two standards that make it suitable for electrical substation installations—IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613—specifications that are more stringent than NEMA TS1/TS2 requirements for transportation applications.

    Three levels of isolation.
    The Industrial Opto-Isolated RS-232 Repeater features 2-kV triple isolation, protecting equipment as well as data from rogue currents and ground loops. It provides powerful isolation on both DTE and DCE ports, and with additional isolation on the repeater's power supply circuits, you're given a third degree of protection.

    This level of protection helps prevent stray currents from disrupting important RS-232 communications, such as those in factory, engineering, military, defense industry, or utility applications.

    By isolating voltage anomalies, you stand a much better chance of preventing a surge from shutting down an assembly line—or your entire plant.

    Simple to set up and troubleshoot.
    Its rugged, panelmount case is designed for easy integration with control panel or other industrial equipment.

    Simply connect data cables to its DB9 female connector (DCE) and its DB9 male connector (DTE). For power, it has a removable, two-position terminal block that accepts 10-48 VDC power from any external power source (not included).

    The repeater also supports loopback tests for troubleshooting. Through DCE and DTE port cable connections, you can use Hyperterminal® or a similar program to perform these tests.

    NOTE: Power supply not included.
