SDS122 Two-Way Serial Data Switch

Overview

The SDS122 is a configurable, two-way serial data switch that allows two modem devices to be connected to a datalogger at the same time. The SDS122 connects the datalogger to whichever modem initiates communications. allowing both remote and local interrogation of the datalogger to be carried out.

Detailed Description

The SDS122 is a configurable, two-way serial data switch that allows two modem devices to be connected to a datalogger at the same time. The SDS122 connects the datalogger to whichever modem initiates communications allowing both remote and local interrogation of the datalogger to be carried out. The SDS122 supports both DTE and DCE devices without the need for a null modem cable, and can operate either in manual or automatic mode.

The SDS122 has one CS I/O port and one RS-232 port. The SDS122 answers the first incoming call; the other port receives a busy signal. Common combinations include a COM220 telephone modem and a RAD short haul modem or an SC32B Interface and a RAD short haul modem.

A typical application is to have a telephone modem connected to port B while a personal computer is connected to port A. This configuration allows either device to "talk to" the datalogger without the need to connect and disconnect cables at the datalogger. Some customers have also found this functionality useful when they wish to provide an easily accessible "walk-up" port for their computer while "burying" the telephone connection in the depths of an instrumentation enclosure.

Current Consumption in Various Modes/Communication Activity:

Mode Activity Current Drain from Datalogger
Isolated Quiescent (not communicating) < 75 µA
Isolated Communicating Up to 3 mA
Non-Isolated No RAD-SRM modem connected and with no communication activity (quiescent) < 100 µA
Non-Isolated RAD-SRM connected, waiting for call 2.5 mA
Non-Isolated RAD-SRM in communications session but no communication activity 9 mA
Non-Isolated Jumper PL50 not fitted; RAD-SRM connected but no communication activity. (This is the one-way, print-enabled RAD-SRM mode.) 100 µA

Compatibility

Enclosure Considerations

The SDS122 requires a desiccated, non-condensing environment; a Campbell Scientific enclosure is recommended. The SDS122's case has mounting flanges for attachment to the 1"-on-center hole grid of Campbell Scientific enclosures. Grommets and screws are provided to attach the flanges to the backplate of our enclosures.
