Good to know
The PCD7.T160 was replaced by the smaller PCD7.T161 (230VAC) or the PCD7.T162 (24VAC/DC) in 2011. The repair of the PCD7.T160 is guaranteed until end of 2016.

Label and schema of PCD7.T162 are incorrect on housings produced before week 22 of 2011 (FAQ #101615)
The label of the supply voltage pins 1L/2L and 3N/4N are inverted. This wrong label is present on the schema of the housing and directly on the pins.
When a PCD7.T162 produced before week 22 of 2011 (30.05.2011) has a 24V DC supply voltage it does not work when it is connected like described in the schema on the housing.
The pins 1L/2L and 3N/4N are printed inversely. This means that the functionality is still the same but the 24V DC need to be connected to the pins 3N/4N and the 0V to 1L/2L.
Units of PCD7.T162 produced after 11/22 (30.05.2011) are correctly labelled and they can be connected to the supply voltage as described in the schema on the housing.
RS-485 wiring information (FAQ #100152)
There are confusing screw terminal identifier terminologies around. Depending on the manufacturer the identifiers used are in conflict to the identifiers you can find in SBC manuals.
RS-485 is a Bus-system, therefore the signal wires shall not be crossed.
ConverterPCD Rx-Tx (or D)Rx-Tx /Rx-/Tx/ (or /D)/Rx-/Tx
Sometimes "+Data" and "-Data" can be found on devices. Then "+Data" propably has to be connected to "/Rx-/Tx" (or /D) and "-Data" to "Rx-Tx" (or D).
Some products form other manufacturers (p.e. RS232 - RS485 converters) are often inversly indicated. Therefore it is sometimes necessary to cross the wires.

PCD7.T120 converter RS 232 - RS 485 doesn't work with PG5 and visualisation! (FAQ #100099)
This converter is not suitable for application where its RTS signal is driven by a PC (PG5 and Visualisation system). The different RTS-handling with Win XP / Vista cause problems. A stable connection can't be garanteed.
You find on the market intelligent RS 232 - RS 485 converter appropriated for PG5 and supervision. For swiss customer the following adapter is avalable from Distrelec: I-7520A Manufacturer: ICP-DAS
