RS232 to 0-10 Volt Analog Converter
Control 10 volt controllable equipment from a touch panel controller, computer, terminal, etc. The output voltage is directly proportional to the percentage sent to the unit for example, a sent value of 97% would be 9.7 volts out, 50% = 5 volts, 2.1% = 2.1 volts etc. Connect an RS232 terminal or computer port and control up to 12 outputs at 20mA (source) and 10mA (sink). The RS23210V, an RS232 to 0~10V converter/controller, is easy to install and use. Control any analog device such as LED drivers, dimmer packs, with variable 0~10 volt analog outputs. Or with the switch mode control Solid State Relays (SSR's) to control equipment that requires on/off. A set of commands and auto fade rates offer power and flexibility for controlling equipment. Use any RS232 terminal application to create command strings to set output voltages with 256 steps to turn on, off, fade up, and fade down, etc. 12V power supply sold separately. Other enclosure options with more outputs are available contact sales for more information.

Functions and Features
Set a single channel or range (or a multiple set) of channels to a specific value, and add or subtract values to existing levels. Any of the command strings can have a fade rate up to 59.9 seconds, and all output channels can have an independent and simultaneous fade rate up or down. With the global fade rate command, any existing fades can be updated to a new rate, finalize, or to immediately end any fades. Compatible with computer RS232 serial port / terminal programs like 'HyperTerminal' or download a terminal application such as 'Cool Term'. Note-The 5 Volt version has 3 and 5 pin XLR connectors - only one should be used at any one time.
Command String Examples:
- D5@95G Output 5 is immediately set to 9.5 volts
- D2+4+9@50G Outputs 2, 4, and 9 are immediately set to 5 volts
- D3-16@10G Outputs 3 through 16 are immediately set to 1 volt
- D2@75F01.5G Output 2 will fade to 7.5 volts (from it's current value) in 1.5 seconds
- D2+4+12<10D5-10>50G Outputs 2, 4, and 12 will increase by 1 volt, outputs 5 through 10 will decrease by 5 volts, both from their current value at the time the 'G' command is sent
- D7-10@99F50.0G Outputs 7 through 10 will fade to 9.9 volts in 50 seconds
- Fxx.xG Global fade- 00.0-59.9 Seconds all existing fades will end at the new rate] Send F00.0G and all fades will halt at their current levels.
- S14@95G Scene 14 will be recalled at 95% of the saved levels
- S100@50F12.5G Scene 100 will be recalled at 50% of the saved levels with a fade to rate of 12.5 seconds
- S57VG Scene 57 will be saved at the current levels
