SensorNet to RS-422 Code Converter

The American Dynamics RCSN422 SensorNet to RS-422 Code Converter converts SensorNet communication from the ADTT16E controller to the RS-422 protocol. This provides a migration path from VM1 to ADTT16E. The universal mount design allows the Class 2 LPS certified unit to be mounted on a wall, surface, or rack. One SensorNet port accommodates the ADTT16E controller, and 7 RS-422 output ports accommodate domes and J-Boxes.

RCSN422 features include:

  • Provides a migration path from VM1 to ADTT16E
  • Allows ADTT16E systems to control existing RS-422 SpeedDome Series domes
  • Class 2 LPS certification
  • Universal mount design
  • Supports 4 presets per suitably equipped dome
  • Supports 3 patterns per suitably equipped dome, including apple peel
  • Supports proportional speed dome control and dome flip features
  • Comprehensive diagnostics with front panel indicators
