The stand-alone converters are housed in metal enclosures with a switchable 115/230VAC 50/60Hz power supply. The rackmount converters are plug-in boards that mount in, and draw power from, Universal Mount Chassis (UMC) or TRI-PAK Space Saver Chassis card cages. Their port connectors are mounted on each individual board so that they are accessible at the rear of the chassis.
All port connectors on Interface Converters are female. RS232 and RS530 connectors are DB25F. V.35 connectors are M34F. X.21 connectors are DB15F. RS449/422 ports use a DB25F connector along with a 1 foot adapter cable that provides a DB37F cable connection.
