  VC-485 Multi-Function Communication Interface
The VC-485 Communication Interface is an RS-232/RS-485 protocol converter primarily used to connect a PC to a KT-100/ KT-200/ KT-300 controller. The maximum bus length is 5 km (18,000 ft, when line repeater is used) and 1,200 m (4,000 ft) for EntraPass when using Ethernet Grade 3, unshielded, two twisted pair cable (Belden # 1227A recommended). Two VC-485's may be connected back-to-back to be used as a line repeater in order to extend the RS-485 communications bus.
  • Converts RS-232 to RS-485
  • Supports up to 32 Kantech controllers
  • Uses UTP cable
  • Powered by 5 VDC or 12 VDC
  • Extends communication up to 1,200 m (4,000 ft)
  • Extends communication up to 5,486 m (18,000 ft) by connecting two together
  • Two VC-485s may be connected back-toback to extend the RS-485 communication bus
