Industrial Networking: Introduction to Networking

Doug Bell introduces Chris Harris. Networks communicate in several ways including by wire, wireless, and fiber optics. Various standards such as RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 and Ethernet come with the particular device being...

Industrial Networking: Basics of RS-232

The RS-232 standard allows for communication between two devices in either a master-slave or master-master configuration. A master-master configuration does not require the cables to be changed however the hardware needs to...

Industrial Networking: RS-232 Media and Hardware

All types of connectors are found with RS-232 with no set standard, zip links are a solution especially in long distance (up to 50 feet) applications. DTE and DCE devices require different wiring configurations. The device...
