Original Press Release:
High Speed Ruggedized Model 4176 Converts USB Data from a PC to RS485/422/232 Networks
Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL), Cranston, RI, announces the new Model 4176 high speed, ruggedized USB to RS485/422/232 interface converter. With its integrated rate buffering, the Model 4176 converts USB 2.0 compliant data from a standard PC to a serial asynchronous data interface over RS232 or RS485/422 networks. The baud rate is user selectable with operating speeds up to 1.5 Mbps for RS232 and up to 3 Mbps for RS485/422. This rugged converter operates from - 40°C to +85°C and features ESD protection circuitry on the USB I/O connector and all receivers and transmitters for the RS232 and RS485/422 interfaces.
Typical applications for the M4176 include USB PC to PC long distance communications, factory automation, multi-drop data collection devices, barcode readers, time clocks, scales, data entry terminals, ATMs and serial communications in harsh environments. This unit provides an industrial solution for applications requiring single point-to-point or multi-point communication links over short or long distances.
This desktop converter can be ordered with the USB I/O connector on the front or back of the unit. Accessories include DIN rail mounting hardware. The unit is also available as a board only, Model 4177, with front mounting threaded brackets for rack mounting in embedded applications.
