Over 10 years ago HASCOM was asked by BHP IO to develop a device which could replace a number of components in their railway telemetry communications system. The device had to interface between different serial protocols, on different carriers, provide some digital IO, be ultra reliable and low cost. We originally designed the "S2 to EC4 Protocol Converter" which is still in use today. But as the requirements and installation base grew, the design went through several revisions, which include the "Serial IO" unit that is used at many locations around Australia.
The Serial IO unit provides a field device that can:
Also, for some specific applications, custom firmware has been developed. For example acting as a Genisys protocol slave and an S2 protocol master at the same time to provide protocol conversion in the field. Other customisations could be provided upon request.
