Perle Launches RS485 Repeater
NASHVILLE, April 20th, 2017 — Perle Systems, a global provider of serial device networking hardware, today announces the launch of RS485 Repeaters.
The PSM-ME-RS485/RS485-P Repeater, boosts RS485 serial signals to cover distances up to 1.2km. By using differential voltage lines for data and control signals RS-485 repeaters overcome the limitations of standard serial ports. In addition, 3-way isolation protects devices from transient surges and ground loops on the data line.
“Transmitting RS485 data over a long distance does not have to be expensive or difficult,” comments John Feeney, Chief Operating Officer at Perle Systems. “The PSM-ME-RS485 allows our customers to extend serial device communication without interfering with the integrity of the data.”
