CA-A360-USB CAB – USB to RS-485 Converter

The CA-A360-USB CAB RS-485 Converter is installed between the CENTAUR Server and the CT-V900-A controller, permitting a “daisy-chain” configuration which extends the maximum distance to 1220m (4000ft). Transmit, Receive and Power LEDs provide a visual indication of the module’s status.

The Converter is required when the distance between the CENTAUR Server and the nearest CT-V900-A controller is more than 8.5m (25ft).
