Product Description

Automation Direct created the DL305 Data Communication Module and is part of the DirectLogic 305 line of products. This product was a result of a collaboration between Koyo and PLC Direct. This device is an intelligent module and 3 of these modules can attach to a CPU. The module has eight slots that correspond to numbers 0 through 7. The module supports only he D3-350 CPU, which is a part of the DirectLogic 305 family. The optimal operating temperature of the device is between 0 and 60 degrees Celsius. The humidity of the operating environment should be between 5% and 95%.

The DL305 Data Communication Module comes with a RS232C/422 port which allows for use of both cables. This port has a selectable baud rate that ranges from 300 to 38.4k baud. The user has the choice to give the unit odd or no parity. This will control when  the device decides to do self-checks within. You can also choose whether the device runs in hex mode or ASCII mode.

The module can follow two separate protocols on how the device to device connections should be handled. The first of these is the K-Sequence and MODBUS RTU Slave Protocol. The second sequence is the DirectNET Master/Slave Protocol.

The searchable product number of the DL305 Data Communication Module is D3-DCM. The product number of the instruction booklet is the D3-USER-M manual. Call us now to get pricing quotes and information about our warranties.
