Industrial Serial DIN Rail and Panel Mount Converters

Industrial Serial RS-232 to RS-485 DIN Rail and Panel Mount Converters and Repeaters

Our SCP series RS-232 to RS-422/485 serial DIN rail and panel mount converters are compact and tough. Each model is designed and tested to meet heavy industrial EMC standards. The RS-232 signal is connected through a female DB9 connector. The RS-422/485 (2-Wire and 4-Wire) signal is connected through a removable terminal block, making wiring easy. Power is connected through a two position removable terminal block. Our bit-wise enabled circuitry automatically detects the character time-out eliminating the need to set DIP Switches for the baud rate.

Buy It Just the Way You Need It.
The basic model, SCP211-DFTB3, is non-isolated and made for less demanding temperature extremes. If you need a wider operating temperature but do not require isolation, model SCP211T-DFTB3 is available. These panel mount converter models should be used when isolation is not required, such as applications in which the data line does not exit the control cabinet.

The Toughest of the Bunch
Model SCP311T-DFTB3 offers 2 kV Isolation and will stand up to -40 to 80° C temperature variations. This is our most rugged model in this series. The SCP311 is an excellent investment for protecting your expensive control equipment

Specifications

Our 485LDRC9 is the most popular model. It features both terminal block inputs and a DB9 for added versatility. It is also isolated to protect your valuable gear. For added convenience, we created a kit that includes a serial cable and a power supply. This product is UL recognized.

  • Power input = 10 to 30 VDC
  • Isolation = 2 kV (two way)
  • Housing = DIN Rail mounted, plastic enclosure
  • Inputs = Terminal block with optional DB9 for the RS-232
  • Temperature Range = (-)40 to (+)80 C
  • NEMA TS1/TS2
  • UL Recognized

Our SCP211-DFTB3 is a compact version in a metal panel mount housing without isolation. It is great if you’re only going a short distance - such as inside a control panel. If you do need isolation but like the small metal package, check out our SCP311-DFTB3. The wide temperature version is the SCP311T-DFTB3. These products are UL 508 listed.

  • Power input = 10 to 30 VDC
  • Isolation = 2 kV (SCP311)
  • Housing = Compact panel mount metal enclosure
  • Inputs = Terminal block and DB9
  • Temperature Range = (-) 40 to (+)80 C or 0 to (+)70 C
  • UL 508 Listed

Our 485DRCi adds a level of protection - Isolation x 3! Triple isolation protects the data circuits with optical isolators and a transformer on the power supply circuits. It is also UL Class 1 Division 2 listed for use in hazardous locations - perfect for the oil and gas industry. 

  • Power input = 10 to 48 VDC
  • Isolation = 2 kV (3-Way)
  • Housing = DIN Rail mounted plastic enclosure
  • Inputs = Terminal block and DB9
  • Temperature Range = (-) 40 to (+)80 C
  • UL 508 and Class 1 Division 2 Listed

Our 485DRCi-PH is our most rugged converter. Packaged in a heavy duty metal case, it is IEEE 1613 rated as well as UL Class 1 Division 2. Naturally, it has triple isolation along with shock, drop, and vibration testing. This product was made for the power utility industry, but it is being used in everything from oil rigs to heavy duty vehicles.

  • Power input = 10 to 48 VDC
  • Isolation = 2 kV (3-Way)
  • Housing = Heavy duty metal enclosure
  • Inputs = Terminal block and DB9
  • Temperature Range = (-) 40 to (+)80 C
  • UL Class 1 Division 2 Listed
  • IEEE 1613
  • Shock, drop, and vibration tested

If you application is using our 485LDRC, we would like you to consider switching to our 485LDRC9. It was designed to replace the 485LDRC and has since gained wide acceptance. Due to the large volume, we are able to offer the 485LDRC9 and a better price. The only real difference is the addition of the DB9 option for the RS-232 input and UL recognition.
