The XS202 is a bi-directional RS232 to RS422 converter which is port-powered but with an optional external power terminal which allows you to power the converter from an external 5VDC power source (6-pin screw terminal header is required for this option) in case your serial port does not provide sufficient power to the converter.
This RS232 to RS422 converter supports 4-wire balanced full duplex communication, which allows your applications to operate in full-duplex. The transmission rate of 300 - 115200bps can be applied to point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks. It is suitable for most applications, including industrial, commercial and any general office computer device.
This converter is a bi-directional RS232 to RS422 converter, (meaning it communicates in both directions), reliable and cost-effective which easily lets you connect any RS422 device directly to your computer's serial RS232 COM port, efficiently converting standard RS232 to RS422 signals in full-duplex RS422 and vice versa, without the need for any drivers or other control software.
This particular converter utilizes the popular MAX491 processor chip from Maxim/Dallas Semiconductor and a supporting driver chip from Philips.
A simple and reliable RS232 to RS422 converter for most general and industrial communication needs.
A 5-pin screw terminal header board is included with each converter. If you need to apply external power to this converter then you will need a 6-pin screw terminal header board.
