Data Acquisition and Control with the AIRcable Industrial

This information page shows samples of RS232 devices, sensors and adapters we have successfully tested with the AIRcable Industrial.

 

LCD Color Touch Screen

The EasyLCD from EarthLCD is an intelligent color graphic display with touch screen. The AIRcable Industrial can display graphics through the RS232 interface and can detect touch screen input. For information go to EarthLCD.com.

The AIRcable clock source code is available here: (please add the zip file to the download page)

 

Mini LCD Terminal

The MT1 can run in several modes: as a simple ASCII terminal, as a scrolling display for long messages, or in LCD mode allowing full control of the LCD module by using its native instructions. It includes a one line by 16 character LCD display, 3 pushbutton switches, and a front panel LCD contrast control. For information go to www.industrologic.com.

 

1-Wire Sensor Bus Interface

1-Wire is a sensor bus that supports a number of sensors such as temperature, humidity, moisture. The AIRcable Industrial provides complex input and output functions to send commands to the 1-Wire Host Module and reads sensor data. It then can process the information, store it, or send it to other devices.

The TEMP08

The TEMP08 is a simple RS232 to 1-Wire interface. For more information go to Midondesign.com.

The HA7E

Another RS232-to-1-Wire interface. For more information go to EmbeddedDataSystems.com

The TM#128

Another RS232-to-1-Wire interface. For more information go to phanderson.com.

 

1-Wire Sensors

AAG Electronica

AAG Electronica sells 1-Wire sensors, actuators and a complete weather station.

The 1WIO

A Multi-Purpose 1-Wire sensor. For more information go to www.midondesign.com.

HobbyBoards

HobbyBoards has a number of 1-Wire sensors and actuators for home automation, yard and garden, weather sensors and actuators.

 

Robotic Servo Controller

This is the best servo controller value available. 32 channels of 1uS resolution servo control. Bidirectional communication with Query commands. Synchronized, or "Group" moves. 12 Servo Hexapod Gait Sequencer built in and a very simple serial port command interface. For more information go to www.lynxmotion.com

 

RS232-to-CAN bus controller

The CAN232 is a very small dongle that plugs into the AIRcable's RS232 port and gives an instant CAN connectivity. This means it can be treated by the BASIC program. Sending and receiving can be done in standard ASCII format. For more information go to www.can232.com.

 

RS-422 to RS-232 Converter

The Industrologic SS422 is an RS-422 to RS-232 converter designed to enable Industrologic products with a "Slave to PC" type RS-232 connection to be driven by RS-422 as a SMPT Slave device. This conversion will allow Industrologic products to communicate with other devices at remote locations while retaining the reliability required by industrial applications. For more information go to www.industrologic.com.

 

RS-232 to RS-422/485 Converter

Many important devices used in today's industrial environment are still designed for use with an RS-232 interface. However, RS-232 is a point-to-point interface, and it imposes a distance limitation of only 15 meters between the device and the computer. To overcome these limitations, many users employ RS-232 to RS-422/485 converters. Out STD1914 converter was designed for users who need high quality, high performance interface conversion product to extend RS-232 transmission distance and increase networking capability. For more information go to www.sunix.com.tw.

 

RS232 to RS485 Auto Enabled Converter

The Integrity Instruments XP485-9E automatically converts your RS232 data to RS485 data for long distance multi-point transmission of up to 4,000 feet. For more information go to www.rs-485.com.

 

RS232-to-ODBII

Scantool sells the ElmScan 5 which is a inexpensive scan tool. It supports all OBD-II protocols. For more information go to www.scantool.net. To write ODB-II software for the AIRcable Industrial use this link for a list of open source software systems: www.scantool.net/software/scantool.net/index.shtml#thirdpartysoft.

 

RS232 Analog and Digital I/O Module

This low cost Integrity Instruments data acquisition module uses RS232 communication to access 8 digital I/O points. The digital points can be configured as inputs or outputs in any combination. TTL and CMOS compatible for direct control. The A/D channels are unipolar, with an input range of 0 to 10vdc. For more information go to www.rs-485.com.

 

RS-232 Serial Relay

The RS51-SPR-RELAY is designed to create a simple and inexpensive RS-232 controlled addressable relay board. For more information go to www.industrologic.com.

 

 

Smart RS232 Relay Controller

For more information go to www.6bit.com.

 

RS232-to-SPI interface

Our own little RS232-to-SPI interface is available upon request by emailing: . It has a 4MByte memory flash memory attached to it to act as an external memory modules. It has a standard user interface and a binary mode.

 

RS232 to RJ11 or RJ45 adapter

This adapter can be used to connect RS232 equipment with RJ11 or RJ45 plugs to the AIRcable, such as telescopes, network analyzers, machines etc. Available through AIRcables.
