  • NEMA TS2
  • -40 to 85°C Operating Temperature
  • Rugged IP30 Metal Panel Mount Case
  • 50G Shock, 4G Vibration
  • 2kV Triple Isolation
  • 10 to 48 VDC Input Power


The BB-232OPDRI-PH is our premium Heavy Industrial RS-232 Isolated Repeater. Designed for rugged industrial environments, it has been put through some of the most exacting compliance tests in the industry. Meeting the requirements of IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613, it is suitable for installation in electrical substations. These specifications are more stringent than the NEMA TS1/TS2 requirements for transportation applications. Powerful isolation on both data ports protects your equipment and data from damaging ground loops and surges. Additional isolation on the power supply circuits adds a third degree of protection.

Packaged in a rugged IP30 metal case, this repeater operates in wide temperature extremes. The panel mount form factor with DIN Rail mount option makes it easy to integrate into your control panel or other industrial equipment.

Installation and configuration is easy. Data is connected with a DB9 female connector (DCE) and a DB9 male connector (DTE). Power is connected through terminal block that accepts 10 to 48 VDC from any external source.
