1761-NET-AIC Overview

The AIC+ advanced interface converter is a gateway communication interface between many networked devices. The AIC+ works well with many of the SLC and MicroLogix controllers.

AIC+ receives power from MicroLogix 1000, 1200, and 1500 controllers through the RS-232 8-pin mini-DIN cable.

A 24V dc power supply is necessary for external power if the MicroLogix  is not connected to this port. You will need to set the the DC power-source selector for your specific setup.


Operation Modes

The AIC+ interface converter can be used in the following modes

  • Point-to-point isolator
  • RS-232 to RS- 485 isolator
  • RS-232 to half-duplex user mode ASCII isolator

Communication is established using hardware handshaking or auto transmit signal.

Device Compatibility

The AIC+ interface converter can be used to interconnect the following devices.

  • SLC 500, 50/01, 5/02, and 5/03 processors (channel1)
  • SLC 5/03, 5/04, 5/05 processor (channel 0)
  • MicroLogix controllers
  • Logix controllers
  • 1756-DH485 ControLogix module
  • Operator interface devices
  • Personal computer serial ports (or any 9-pin DTE serial port)
  • Modems
