Line Drivers and Converters for RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 Systems

Industrial LANs and data communication systems stretch over long distances, inside and outside, with signals exposed to electrical transients, noise, ground loops, power surges, and lightning. Commercial communications equipment often is not designed for use in these environments, which can lead to unreliable signal quality, damage to expensive peripherals, computers, and other online equipment, and production downtime. Our heavy duty products “harden” and protect these systems, and can extend communications for many miles without expensive low-capacitance cabling.


Our LDM Series line drivers and converters protect host computers and equipment and extend the distances over which computers, terminals, and other devices can communicate within hazardous industrial and institutional environments – up to 12 miles using wire pairs and current loop protocols, or two miles with fiber optic data links for total electrical isolation.


Our DCP485 DIN Rail RS-232 to RS-485 converter/line driver provides 1500 Vrms continuous isolation and data transfer up to 115.2kbps with auto-matic RS-485 line control while powered from +10 to +30 VDC.
