The adapter requires a 9 to 24V DC power which means it can be powered
by the same 12 to 24V power supply of the PLC.
converter supports both /RTS-controlled turnaround and automatic turnaround
of the transceiver buffer. The following are some possible applications:
programming an M-series PLC via its RS485 port so that its RS232 port
can be freed for connecting to other devices such as HMI, SCADA, barcode
scanner, smart card readers, etc.
linking as many as 240 PLCs via RS485 multi-drop bus to a single PC
for local programming or remote programming / monitoring via the Internet.
transparently convert the PLC's RS485 port into an additional RS232
port for interfacing to third party RS232 devices. This is made possible
by auto-turnaround features built into the adapter.
