Product Information

Product Description

The ADAM-4521 is an intelligent RS422/485 to RS232 converter specifically designed to connect RS422/485 devices to an RS232 network. RS232 is the most common transmission standard. Although widely available on most computer systems, measurement equipment, PLCs, and industrial devices, its transmission speed, communication distance, and especially networking capability are limited due to unbalanced transmission. The ADAM-4521 addressable converter solves this problem and lets you easily build up an RS485 network with your RS232 devices by assigning each one an address for easier communication.
