Nematron Europe has announced two further developments in its EP1000 series fanless touch-panel PC 24VDC power supply.

The EP1016 can now be ordered with a 24VDC power supply, and power cable connection is made through the Phoenix-type unpluggable screw terminal connector.

A further option is the ability to specify an optically isolated RS485 port to complement the RS-232 ports.

RS485 offers the benefits of low-cost local networks with high transmission speeds and spanning large distances.

However, all large RS485 networks can be at risk from transient power surges, ground loops, power faults and lightning.

In particular, lightning (even nearby) can cause multiple network damage and resultant downtime.

The high cost in lost production usually outweighs the cost of repairs by an order of magnitude.

Providing adequate protection can save the cost of both.

Fitting and maintaining additional optical isolation can often be difficult, involving expensive and bulky adaptors, power supply and extra cables.

The built-in opto-isolator of the EP unit reduces cost and avoids another engineering job.

The EP offers complete opto-isolation of the RS485 port with no special fitting or extra cables at less cost than buying and installing all the necessary parts for an external opto-isolator unit.
