Deck control over long lengths
on Mar 8, 2010 at 11:11:12 pm

Hey all i wondering how large multi room facilities handle deck control to machine rooms.

i want to share one digibeta with two rooms - (each with a miltibridge pro) i have an 422 AB switch - and i am wondering if there is a better solution then running a 100 ft RS422 cable to the 2nd room?

is there a good Rs422- to Ethernet solution?

thanks!

I have been using ethernet cable for 10 years for RS422 control.
It works fine, and 100' for RS422 is NOTHING !

you use RJ45-9 pin adaptors. You can get them from
http://www.milestek.com
and others.
This is the wiring color code I use (there is no soldering - you just push the pins into the holes on the 9 pin) -

1 Red
2 Orange
3 Black
4 Green
5 nothing
6 Brown
7 Blue
8 Yellow
9 Gray (or white)
