Serial Communications Cards
Niobrara's A66P1, A66N2, and A66SM cards allow the direct connection of an ALTIVAR™ 66 AC Drive controller to multipoint serial networks for use in building automation applications. Both products consist of a Type 3 Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) card and a captive 10 foot cable that terminates in a 15-pin male D-subminiature connector. Each of the cables is shipped as a kit, bundled with a Phoenix Contact Subcon 15-pin to terminal adapter for connection to network wiring.
Embedded within each of these cards is the communication protocol and the correct set of serial communications parameters specified by the manufacturer of the connected device network. The A66xx card acts as a protocol translator to exchange operational data with the ALTIVAR 66 drive controller.
