The DataPro 8500 is a bi-directional interface convertor between RS232 Serial and RS422/RS485.

Two slide switches control its operation mode, contention control, and assignment of the RS232.

The 8500-I model offers Opto-Isolation, a unique method of using couplers to isolate signals and maximize the data speed and integrity. Additionally, internal transformers protect the unit and your hardware from surges and spikes up to 2000 volts.

The 8500 and 8500-I units are powered by a DC 9v 200ma power adaptor. For a self-powered model, the 8500-N is fed via the serial bus and requires no external supply.
