USB - RS 485 converter
To access a RS 485 network from a PC / Notebook a converter is needed.
Since most notebooks do not have a serial port the PCD7.T120 (RS232-RS485 converter) cannot be used anymore. It is not possible to have a USB-RS 232 converter and afterwards the PCD7.T120 this will not work.
We successfully tested the following USB - RS 485 converter:
- Moxa UPort 1130. It works well with PG5 1.4 and PG5 2.0 on Windows XP and Windows Vista.
- ICP DAS I-7561. It works fine with PG5 1.4 and PG5 2.0 on Windows XP SP2 or higher.
Please note that the converter from ICP DAS only works for USB - RS 485. The USB - RS 232 option does not work properly.
PG5 2.0 / USB
