Serial Repeaters

     With our data isolation and data repeaters, you can protect your electronics from power spikes, lightning surges, dangerous ground loops, and accidental high voltage shorts, while increasing your data line range.



BB-485OPDR

The BB-485OPDR is an optically isolated RS-422/485 isolated line repeater that can be used to isolate a piece of equipment from the rest of the network. As a repeater, it extends the distance of an existing network an additional 1.2 km (4000 ft.) and expands it beyond the typical 32-node limitation. Data signals and the power inputs connect to the terminal block. 600W surge suppression ensures that the connected equipment is protected even in the harshest of environments. 2-wire RS-485, 4-wire RS-485 and RS-422 are supported. The repeater operates on externally sourced 10 to 30 VDC power. The enclosure has a DIN rail mount that is designed to fit easily on a standard 35mm rail.


BB-485OPDR-HS

The BB-485OPDR-HS is a high speed, optically isolated RS-422/485 repeater that supports data rates up to 1.5 Mbps, making it suitable for use in fieldbus systems such as Profibus. The BB-485OPDR-HS provides 2 kV digital Isolation with 8 kV air ESD protection and 600 W transient voltage suppression on the data lines. The BB-485OPDR-HS can be used to extend the range of a network up to 4000 ft. (1.2 km), depending on data rates, and to add additional nodes. 2-Wire RS-485, 4-Wire RS-485 and RS-422 are supported. Data signals and the power inputs connect to built-in terminal blocks. The repeater operates on externally sourced 10 to 30 VDC power. The enclosure has a DIN rail mount that is designed to fit easily on a standard 35mm rail.


BB-485OPDRI-PH

Model BB-485OPDRI-PH is our premium heavy industrial RS-422/485 isolated repeater. Designed for rugged industrial environments, it has been put through some of the most exacting compliance tests in the industry. Meeting the requirements of IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613, it is suitable for installation in electrical substations. These specifications are more stringent than the NEMA TS1/TS2 requirements for transportation applications. Powerful isolation on both data ports protects your equipment and data from damaging ground loops and surges. Additional isolation on the power supply circuits adds a third degree of protection.
Packaged in a rugged IP30 metal case, it extends full or half-duplex RS- 422/485 signals an additional 4000 feet and allows you to add another 32 nodes to your network. Our bit-wise enabled circuitry automatically detects the data rate without setting a DIP switch.


BB-232OPDRI-PH

The BB-232OPDRI-PH is a premium heavy industrial RS-232 isolated repeater. Designed for rugged industrial environments, it meets some of the most exacting compliance tests in the industry including IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 making it suitable for installation in electrical substations. These specifications are more stringent than the NEMA TS1/TS2 requirements for transportation applications.
Powerful isolation on both data ports protects your equipment and data from damaging ground loops and surges. Additional isolation on the power supply circuits adds a third degree of protection.
Packaged in a rugged IP30 metal case, this repeater operates in wide temperature extremes. The panel mount form factor with DIN Rail mount option makes it easy to integrate into your control panel or other industrial equipment.
Installation and configuration is easy. Data is connected with a DB9 female connector (DCE) and a DB9 male connector (DTE). Power is c...


BB-232OPDR

The 232OPDR is a DIN Rail mountable RS-232 optical isolator and repeater. It provides 2000 V Isolation for four RS-232 signal lines, two in each direction. The isolator has four LED’s to show data flow and one LED to indicate power. Connections are made to a terminal block. The isolation provides protection for computer equipment from ground loops and induced currents caused by lightning or heavy electrical loads. It also functions as a repeater to extend RS-232 signals another 50 feet. The 232OPDR can support two data pairs or one data pair plus control signals in both directions.


BB-485OPDRI

The 485OPDRI isolated RS-422/485 repeater is designed for rugged industrial environments. It is UL listed and certified for use in Class 1/Division 2 locations. Powerful optical isolation on both data ports protects your equipment and data from damaging ground loops and surges. Additional isolation on the power supply circuits add a third degree of protection.
Packaged in a rugged ABS plastic case, this repeater operates in wide temperature extremes. With a 35mm DIN rail mounting bracket, it easily integrates into control panels or other industrial equipment.
Installation and configuration is easy with DIP switches to set up baud rate and serial communications mode. Removable terminal blocks make wiring a snap. Power is connected through separate terminal block that accepts 10 to 48 VDC from any external source.
