Communication networks vary greatly from site to site and often change as technology advances. Converters and gateways provide a bridge between different protocols and standards that exist in the industrial automation field. Converters allow exchanges between RS-232, RS-422, USB, and RS-485 signals while gateways convert Modbus TCP to/from Modbus RTU/ASCII.
AutomationDirect offers several converters and isolators for industrial serial communications applications, including USB to serial adapters and converters, RS232 converters and adapters, RS422 converters and adapters and RS485 converters and adapters.
