Sku: MUX-8

8 Port Multiplexer

 MUX8 Installation Manual

The Mux-8 is an 8-port multi-device interface panel that provides the flexibility to take RS-485 or RS-232 wiring inputs to create 8, 2-wire RS-485 communication channels.

The Mux-8 adds flexibility to expand a single data line into multiple data lines to meet difficult system design and installation challenges. Common uses include star topology, wiring schemes, home-run wiring, or when wiring distances exceed the 4000 ft. limit of the RS-485 standard.  Each unit utilizes bus-arbitration logic on a first-come, first-serve basis and can detect and deactivate a broken channel to protect the integrity of the communications bus.
