EP6002-0002 | 2-channel serial interface, RS232, RS422/RS485


The EP6002 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 data is transferred via the fieldbus using a simple handshake protocol. This does not have any effect on the protocol of the serial interface. 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 (see TwinCAT Supplements – Communication) the EP6002 can be used as a normal Windows COM interface.
