EPP6002-0002 | 2-channel serial interface, RS232, RS422/RS485

The EPP6001-0002 serial interface module allows the connection of devices with an RS232 or RS422/RS485 interface. The module transmits the data in a fully transparent manner to the higher-level automation device. The active serial communication channel functions independently of the higher-level bus system in full duplex mode at up to 115,200 baud, while a 864 byte receive buffer and a 128 byte send buffer are available. The connector assignment depends on the interface. For each channel, RS232 or RS422/RS485 can be selected. In conjunction with the TwinCAT Virtual Serial COM Driver the EPP6001-0002 can be used as a normal Windows COM interface.
