June 22, 2018 - Designed by Balluff, the RS232 to IO-Link converter module is designed to simplify the controls architecture by offering a unified solution throughout the plant floor.
The RS232 converter is designed for bi-directional communication, enabling communication over a variety of serial devices on the plant floor. Additionally, when using with a Balluff IO-Link master, power for the attached serial device is supplied through this connector, eliminating the need for separate power connection.
The module has a stainless steel housing, IP67 ingress protection rating and M18-barrel-style inline design. The barrel design ensures the RS232 converter can be placed very close to the point of use and then utilize standard 3- or 4-pole sensor cable from this interface module to the IO-Link master.
