The time-tested and industry-proven serial port continues to find its use in all sorts of industrial applications and installations. But what happens when you need more ports than provided for in the embedded system? Here, we learn how to extend the number of serial ports using USB-to-serial bridges, I2C-to-serial port converters and other solutions to free your network of these limitations.

We understand it is important to have a network that grows to meet your expanding operations. This is why we bring you the RPT-232-3: a rugged, industrial-grade, optically-isolated, port-powered RS232 Repeater / RS232 Extender (TX, RX, and GND).

Extend your full-duplex RS-232 distance to up to 1.8 miles (3 km) with this device. Its 2500V opto-isolation circuitry further guards your devices against the unexpected: from ground loops, noise problems, transient surges, remote lightning and spikes.

This auto-sensing and self-adjusting device is a true plug-and-play solution that combines extension, protection and isolation in one compact, rugged product built to our industry-proven CommFront quality standards. Achieve much more with a product and network that goes the extra mile.

See for yourself how an opto-isolator works. With optical isolation, by making sure that only light passes between two serial devices, both devices are isolated. This way, common hazards like ground loops, noise problems, transient surges, remote lightning, and spikes are contained and your other devices safe.

Get reliable, rugged protection you can plug-and-play with the CVT-232A-4: our high-speed (300 to 115,200bps), externally-powered, 3-wire RS232 isolator. Auto-sensing and self-adjusting, this device smoothly and automatically adjusts baud rate, parity, stop bit and other COM port parameters to the devices connected to it – all the while requiring no additional drivers or manual settings.

A wide operating temperature range, 5000V opto-isolation, surge and static protection makes the CVT-232A-4 an industrial-grade product that delivers dependable protection against threats like ground loops, noise problems, transient surges, remote lightning, and spikes.

The CVT-485A-1 is a slimmer twist on our popular CVT-485-1 rugged, industrial-grade, port-powered RS232 to RS485 converter, perfect for use in space-restricted environments. It converts any standard RS232C port into a two-wire half-duplex RS485 port and vice versa.

The converter consumes less than 8mA of power from the RS232 data line, yet supports multi-drop RS485 networks and can be used to communicate with one loop of up to 128 units of RS485 devices. The product’s 5-way terminal block fits securely with the CVT-485-1 without messing with screws and nuts, making installation a breeze.

Using commercial-grade converters for your industrial installations can cost you in the long-run and threaten your mission-critical equipment. Industrial-grade converters need rugged components and reliability-engineering designs that outperform their commercial-grade counterparts in durability. The truly rugged converters must deliver on the level of circuit protection, temperature range and noise tolerance that challenging industrial environments demand.
