INA-1 Inline RS-232 Adapter

Purpose:

The Ashly Inline RS-232 Adapter exists to allow Ashly Products that do not have an RS-232 port, but do have the WR-5 data control in- put and output connections, to be connected to RS-232 control systems. The preferred method to control Protea NE products is with either TCP or UDP via Ethernet, however this may not always be possible in some installations where a non-Ethernet control system is used.

Usage:

To use the Ashly Inline RS-232 Adapter with a non RS-232 capable Ashly product, wire the adapter euroblock connector labelled 1-4 to the DATA port pins 1-4 on the back panel of the Ashly product. The pins should be wired 1 to 1, 2 to 2, 3 to 3, 4 to 4. Then wire the RS-232 side of the adapter to the control system via normal straight through RS-232 cable. (DO NOT USE A NULL MODEM CABLE). If a longer distance is required, that distance should be made on the data port (euroblock) side of the adaptor, up to 1,000 ft (304m). The RS-232 side should be kept to normal RS232 lengths.

Control System Interface/Programming:

The DATA port supports “Ashly WR Wall Remote Additions” messages, found in the NE RS-232 Protocol document available from Ashly at:
