I am looking for a RS232 to RS485 converter because I need to control with an automate 18 same devices using only the RS232. For me, it means I will need 18 inputs one for each devices. So, converting all in RS485 will permits to have only one input of my automate.
I see the product IC232485S. If I well understand, I need to buy one for each instrument, in order to have a RS485 network instead of 18 RS232 communication.
Is that it ?
If yes, I imagine I will set an adress for each converter in order to select which equipment I will communicate. Right ?
tThank you in advance. Best regards.
