Serial/USB Converters/Repeaters: ADAM-4500 series


Serial conversion and isolation products covering RS-232 to RS-422/485 converters, USB to RS-232/422/485 converters, and fiber optic converters.

  • ADAM-4510


    The ADAM-4510 repeaters simply amplify, or boost, existing RS-485 signals to enable them to cover longer distances. They extend the communication distance by 4000 ft (1200 m) or extend the number of connected nodes by 32.


  • ADAM-4510I


    The ADAM-4510I (RS-422/485 repeater) is designed more rugged than previous models which have wider operating and storage temperatures, can accept a wider power input, and have excellent anti-noise design. Moreover, it provides signal isolation (3,000VDC) protection and power surge (50V) protection. These industrial-grade features ensure robust and reliable operation in harsh environment applications.


  • ADAM-4510S


    Most industrial computer systems come with standard RS-232 serial ports. Though widely accepted, RS-232 has limited transmission speed, range, and networking capabilities. The RS-422 and RS-485 standards overcome these limitations by using differential voltage lines for data and control signals. The ADAM-4520/4522 converter lets you take advantage of RS-422 and RS-485 on systems originally equipped with RS-232. It transparently converts RS-232 signals into isolated RS-422 or RS-485 signals. You do not need to change your PC''''''''s hardware or your software. The ADAM-4510S repeater simply amplifies, or boosts, existing RS-422/485 signals to enable them to cover longer distances. It extends the communication distance by 4000 ft. (1200 m) or increases the maximum number of connected nodes by 32.

  • ADAM-4521


    The ADAM-4521 is an intelligent RS-422/485 to RS-232 converter specifically designed to connect RS-422/485 devices to an RS-232 network. RS-232 is the most common transmission standard. Although widely available on most computer systems, measurement equipment, PLCs, and industrial devices, its transmission speed, communication distance, and especially networking capability are limited due to unbalanced transmission. The ADAM-4521 addressable converter solves this problem and lets you easily build up an RS-485 network with your RS-232 devices by assigning each one an address for easier communication.


  • ADAM-4541


    Fiber optics transmission offers the benefits of wide bandwidth, immunity to EMI/RFI interference, and secure data transmission. ADAM-4541 can be used as an RS-232/422/485 point-to-point or point-to-mutipoint connection for transmitting and converting full/half-duplex signals and their equivalents within a fiber optic environment. Fiber optics is the perfect solution for applications where the transmission medium must be protected from electrical exposure, lightning, atmospheric conditions or chemical corrosion.


  • ADAM-4542+


    Fiber optic transmission offers the benefits of wide bandwidth, immunity to EMI/RFI interference, and secure data transmission. ADAM-4542+ can be used as a RS-232/422/485 point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connection for transmitting and converting full/half-duplex signals and their equivalents within a fiber optic environment. Fiber optics is the perfect solution for applications where the transmission medium must be protected from electrical exposure, lightning, atmosphere. ADAM-4542+ is specifically designed to link various machinery equipped with a RS-232/422/485 communication port (such as computer systems or manufacturing machines). Using standard SC type fiber connector, the module''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s fiber optic ports can accommodate a wide range of fiber optic cable sizes, including 62.5/125, 250/125, 100/140 mm.


  • ADAM-4561


    ADAM-4561/4562 allows PC users to connect a serial device to a system that use a USB interface. To attach the ADAM-4561/4562 to a PC, you don’t need to open the chassis or power down your PC. Instantly get one or two extra high-speed RS-232/422/485 ports. The power is derived from the USB port, so there are no power adapters to deal with. Thismakes the ADAM-4561/4562 especially suitable for modems, printers, POS systems and industrial control devices.
