Casino IT Managers: RS-485 Converters Designed to Support Casino / VLT Data Networks

April 26, 2010

HP Fiber to RS-485 Interface Converters and HP Fiber to RS-232 Interface Converters

Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL), Cranston, RI, announces that HP Fiber RS-485 Converters are ideal for casino data networks. These converters connect fiber optic linked terminals to a controller having an RS-485 interface port. The advantage of conversion to a fiber optic communication standard is that the data transmission is no longer susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields.


These converters convert RS-485/RS-422 serial communication interface to HP Versatile Link plastic core cable. The converters provide full galvanic isolation (no metallic connection) between connected devices. The data transfer rate is greater than 20 Kbps. Models 4127 and 4129 convert HP Fiber to RS-485.


Electro Standards also supplies HP Versatile Link Plastic Core cables. For more information, contact Electro Standards Laboratories at 401-943-1164, eslab@electrostandards.com, www.ElectroStandards.com
