The Model 9365 is a cost-effective solution designed to enable
networks using the latest DB9 interface connections to seamlessly
communicate between RS-485 or RS-422 devices, and RS-232 equipment
at data rates up to 115.2 kbps. Its Tri-Mode capabilities provide
ultimate flexibility for user-selectable conversion between RS-232
and either RS-422 or RS-485 devices, while its new reengineered
design permits an easy snap-on connection to standard DIN Rails.
The Model 9365 addresses these needs by allowing for user-selectable
conversion between RS-232 and either RS-422 or RS-485 in one small
box. For added versatility, it offers an "intelligent" mode to
control the RS-485 line, and may be configured as either a two-wire
or four-wire converter. Further flexibility is achieved for RS-485
conversion applications using half-duplex protocol-the unit can be
configured to control data flow using the RTS (Pin 7) of the RS-232
port, or only when TD data is applied to the RS-232 port.
A static LCD display provides confirmation of data transfer between
connected devices. Useful during installation, testing and whenever
there are suspected conversion problems, the graphic display
presents users with real-time status of the Transmit (TD) and
Receive (RD) Data signals, as well as CTS, RTS, DSR, DCD, DTR
The Model 9365 incorporates clips in the outer casing so that the
unit can be securely attached to a DIN rail, wall, table or desk in
an organized manner.
