Cables & Connections

Connecting C-more Micro-Graphic Panels

There are several ways to connect C-more Micro-Graphic Panels to PLC's, depending on the cabling distance from PLC to panel.
  • Ready-made serial RS232 cables (3m max.) - for direct power and communications link between the RJ12 connection on each Micro-Graphic panel and the RJ12 port 1 on most DirectLogic PLC's, or the HD15 Port 2 using the FA-15HD Adapter.
  • Ready-made serial RS232 cables (3m max.) - for direct communications link between other brand PLC's and the Micro-Graphic panel fitted with the EA-MG-SPI Serial Port Interface, with 12-24vDC panel power separately supplied.
  • Site-installed serial RS422 / 485 cable (1500m max.) - to suit connected devices, using the EA-MG-SPI Serial Port Interface on the Micro-Graphic Panel.
        RS422 (4-wire 10 point multidrop) - high noise immunity fast serial network.
        RS485 (2-wire 32 point multidrop) - serial polling network.
        RS485 (4-wire 32 point multidrop) - option to support specific devices.
