ANSI X3.28 Interfaces

This table helps you select a GPIB to Serial Interface with the ANSI X3.28 Protocol. The ANSI X3.28 Serial Protocol is used in various industrial control devices including some Watlow and Tenny Temperature Controllers. The GPIB Interfaces listed on this page are all IEEE-488.2 compatible and will respond to the *IDN? query. All configuration parameters are saved in nonvolatile memory.

The Interfaces on this page can be used to replace ICS's older 4814 GPIB to Serial Interface if the 4814 was being used with the 'OPT' switch turned on (ANSI protocol enabled). If the 'OPT' switch was turned off, use a standard 4804B or a 4894B to replace the 4814.

Note that the 4804B-7 and 4894B-7 now replace the older 4804A-7 and 4894A-7 interfaces. The 4804B-7 and 4894B-7 are updated ROHS compliant versions with flash memory.

     
4894B-7 w/F30146    
GPIB ANSI X3.28 Interface 4894B-7 GPIB-to-Serial Interface functions as a GPIB to ANSI X3.28 converter. The F30146 firmware converts GPIB strings into the ANSI X3.28 serial protocol. The 4894B-7 is a standalone interface box with RS-232 and RS-422/RS-485 serial interfaces. It is ideal for controlling Temperature Chambers and other devices with the serial ANSI X-3.28 protocol. Can drive up to 32 ANSI devices on a RS-485 network. Download the 4894B-7 Data Sheet as a PDF file.

4804B-7 w/F30145 (4814 Replacement)
4804B 4804B-7 GPIB-to-Serial Interface functions as a GPIB to ANSI X3.28 converter. The F30145 firmware converts GPIB strings into the ANSI X3.28 serial protocol. The 4804B-7 is an OEM board interface with RS-232 and RS-422/RS-485 serial interfaces. It is ideal for controlling Temperature Chambers and other devices with the serial ANSI X-3.28 protocol. Can drive up to 32 ANSI devices on a RS-485 network. The 4804B-7 can be used to replaces obsolete 4814 Boards that were using the ANSI protocol. Download the 4804B-7 Data Sheet as a PDF file.
