RS232 - RS485 Conversion

With the exception of the models with ethernet connection, all meters and transducers with communication capabilities currently manufactured by us use a two wire, RS485 bus interface.

Connection of an RS485 bus to an RS232 port on a PC for example, requires the use of a converter. An Automatic Drive Control converter is recommended for this purpose.

If System Monitor or MultiView is to be used, the use of an automatic drive control converter is essential as the software does not control the hardware hand-shake pins in the PC's port.

A suitable device, K2-ADE can be ordered from KK Systems Ltd

For more information go to KK Systems Ltd website.

All software is provided free of charge and Multitek accepts no responsibility for the application.
Multitek does not provide additional software support free of charge.
