Model 62-1/ -2 RS-232 to EIA-530 Converter is a
stand-alone device that allows conversion for the entire
interface, providing ten Category-I circuits and three
Category-II circuits. The Model 62-1 includes an RS-232
port for interfacing to a DTE, while the Model 62-2 has
a port for interfacing to an RS-232 DCE.
Each of these devices may be powered by the 62-4PS-SW (Switching Power Supply). This is fully connectorized using a Mini-DIN connector.
EIA-530 port on the Model 62-1 / -2 complies with the
signal characteristics of MIL-STD-188-114A, Type II. The
EIA-530 specification entitled "High Speed 25 Position
Interface For Data Terminal Equipment and Data Circuit
Terminating Equipment" was approved March 18, 1987. The
Electronic Industries Association (EIA) is changing
specification nomenclature from RS-XXX to EIA-XXX.
EIA-530 has been developed to serve as a complement to
EIA-232-D for data rates above 20,000 bps. Together with
the EIA-422-A and EIA-423-A, it provides a convenient
means of implementing the higher data rates using the
same mechanical connector as specified in EIA-232-D.
EIA-530 is intended to gradually replace EIA-449 for the
higher data rates.
