The EDAM-8521 can be used to add RS232 devices to an RS422 or RS485 network. The EDAM-8521 can read ASCII data from a "dumb" RS232 device, add an address and have the data available to read across a RS485/422 network in either ASCII or Modbus formats. The RS232 device baud rate and the RS422/485 baud rates can be the same or different.
The EDAM-8521 is an intelligent RS-485/422 to RS-232 converter specifically designed to connect RS-232 devices to an RS-485 network with other RS-485 devices. RS-232 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. The EDAM-8521 addressable converter solves this problem and lets you easily build up an RS-485 network with your RS-232 devices by assigning each one an address.
