The Industrologic IR232 is an infrared to RS-232 converter that is based on the 12 bit Sony SIRCS protocol. In addition to being able to send and receive control codes to and from the infrared and RS-232 ports, it can also be configured to send specific character strings to the serial port when selected infrared codes are received. This will allow it to act as a host and controlling device to any slave device that can accept RS-232 commands.

  • On-board 40 KHZ infrared receiver module
  • 940nM high-power infrared LED
  • Visible LED to confirm reception of infrared transmissions
  • EEPROM for storage of configuration information and character strings
  • Multiple modes of operation available-
    • Send programmed messages when specified infrared codes are received
    • One and two byte binary transmission and reception
  • Serial port with true RS-232 interface and DB9F connector matching PC compatibles
  • Selectable baud rates up to 19200 baud
  • Pin-type power jack for easy connection to wall block power supply
  • On-board +5 volt power supply with wide input range
  • +5 volt output available on DB9 for auxiliary devices

The IR232 is shipped with everything needed for immediate use:

  • Reference manual
  • Wall block power supply
  • RS-232 cable for connection to PC during setup

Note: The included RS-232 cable is used to connect the IR232 to a computer to perform setup procedures. If the IR232 will be communcating with another device that normally connects to a computer, a "null modem" cable or adapter will be needed to change the pinout of the connection.
