DL4000-DAS :
Serial ASCII Data Interface to A-B’s DF1 Protocol
Send and Receive ASCII Data Packets

PDF   Download

The DL4000-DAS is combined ASCII data interface to Allen-Bradley's DF1 serial protocol. It provides an DC powered, freestanding, and Din Rail mountable interface for Bar Code Scanners, Printers and other ASCII devices to the CH0 port of PLC's and SLC's. It is practically helpful in interfacing devices without a built in ASCII port, such as, A-B's ControlLogix.

In Scanner operation the ASCII data is stored in the units buffer until either a terminating character (CR, LF, CR & LF) or 240 bytes are received. Once that happens the packet of ASCII data is sent to an integer file in the PLC.
In Printer operation data stored in PLC ASCII files can be outputted to Printers or message displays with a simple write command to the DL4000. Contact us for more information.
