KL6001, KL6031 | Serial interface RS232

The KL6001 and KL6031 serial interfaces allow devices with an RS232 interface to be connected. The interface operates in conformity with the CCITT V.28/DIN 66 259-1 standards. The device connected to the terminal communicates with the automation device via the Bus Coupler. The active communication channel operates independently of the higher-level bus system in full duplex mode at up to 19,200 baud (KL6001) or 115.2 kbaud (KL6031). The RS232 interface guarantees high immunity to interference through electrically isolated signals.
