ICS's Serial to GPIB Controller allows any computer with a serial port to control GPIB devices. Works with RS-232 and 2 or 4-wire RS-422/RS-485 signals. Use to add GPIB Capability to PLCs with serial ports.

ICS's 488-SERIAL module provides three Serial to GPIB functions for controlling GPIB devices and interfacing serial devices with the GPIB bus. The 488-SERIAL combines the best features of our 4895 Serial to GPIB Controller and our 4894B GPIB to Serial Interface in one small module.

488-SERIAL Serial-to-GPIB Controller and Interface Module

• 3 Serial to GPIB conversion modes in one small module.Improved flexibility.

• S-Mode uses serial commands to control multiple GPIB devices. Makes any serial source a 488.2 GPIB Controller.

• New command complete prompts return command and error status to user. A real serial protocol for controlling GPIB devices prevents command overruns.

• C-Mode sends serial commands to and reads responses from a GPIB device Limited control of a single GPIB device.

• G-Mode adds a GPIB interface to any device with a serial port.Transparent data transfer.

• Supports RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 signals. Versatile serial interface includes Xon/Xoff and hardware handshaking.

• Easy configuration from the serial port or GPIB bus. Use any controller.
