DAT3580 Communication Converter
Heastern Industries has released the DAT3580-USB, the new isolated communication converter from DATEXEL.

Many laptops have phased out the inclusion of COM-ports (RS-232) as standard features, restricting their use with many existing communications products. The DAT3580-USB provides asynchronous data interfacing between USB and serial line RS-485 (or RS-422) communication systems.

The interface incorporates galvanic isolation, separating the power supply, USB connection and RS-485 connection, from one another and effectively removing ground-loop effects. A baud rate of up to 115.2Kbps as well as multipoint connection for 32 modules can be achieved.

All of this can be achieved in a compact 22.5mm thin-line profile, DIN rail mountable housing, manufactured from a hard, self-extinguishing plastic.

HEASTERN Industries has announced a new unique head-mounting loop-powered (4-20 mA output) transmitter for pH electrodes with precise temperature compensation. The design (hockey puck style) will allow direct mounting into a standard IP65 (thermocouple style) head assembly. All pH electrodes, being high impedance devices, produce a millivolt (mV) output signal, proportional to the measured pH. This signal (mV) is not ideal for many applications (such as process control on effluent run offmonitoring, etc.), where the pH sensor is mounted quite some distance from the final monitoring/control instruments. ...more
