The RS-485 connector to the Model 276A allows for half duplex operation through a DB-25 female connector. Refer to the following chart for pin assignments.

DB-25F Data Direction
2 Data I/O-
14 Data I/O+


3.2 Fiber

The fiber optic port has been optimized for operation with 62.5/125 micron cable and comes equipped with ST type fiber optic connectors for the transmit and receive fibers.

4.0 Operation

The Model 276A can be connected to any RS-485 device running at speeds up to 1 MHz. To connect the units, the connections 'Data In' are connected to the 2 wire data from the RS-485 equipment and the 'Data Out' provides a signal to the receive data pins of the RS-485 equipment. To connect the 276A to another 276A the fiber connector marked T should be connected to the far end fiber connector marked R, and the local R to the far end T.
5.0 Power

The Model 276A is powered by a small DC power adapter that supplies reduced DC voltage. In addition, power can be applied to the Model 276A by using pin 9 on the DB25 female connector and pin 7 as the ground connection. When using this pin, the input voltage should be +12VDC.
