Product Overview
Description
The AIC+ advanced interface converter provides a communication
link between various networked devices. The AIC+ interface converter
is compatible with a variety of SLC and MicroLogix controllers and
peripherals.
Communication Port and Switch Locations
RS-485
Communication Port
(Phoenix Plug)
RS-232 (8-pin mini-DIN)

Terminals for external 24V dc power
supply and chassis ground.
MicroLogix 1000, 1200, and 1500 controllers provide power to the
AIC+ interface converter via the RS-232 8-pin mini-DIN port’s cable.
However, if a MicroLogix controller is not connected to this port, a
24V dc power supply connected to the converter’s external power
terminals is required. The dc power-source selector switch needs to
be set for your particular configuration.
See Network Diagrams starting on page 21 for more details on how to
wire and configure the AIC+ interface converter.

Publication 1761-UM004B-EN-P - June 2006

Product Overview
The communication-rate selector switch is used to match the
communication rate filter of the AIC+ interface converter to the
network communication rate. This switch does not change the
network communication rate and is normally left in the AUTO
position. In high noise environments, the communication-rate selector
switch should be taken out of the AUTO mode and set to the same
communication rate as the network.
See Auto Transmit Delay on page 35 for more information on
communication rates.
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 signals.

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

ATTENTION
EXPLOSION HAZARD —
An external power supply must be used in Class I, Division 2
applications and the dc power-source selector switch must be
in the EXTERNAL position before connecting the power supply
to the AIC+ interface converter.

IMPORTANT
Some devices provide power to the AIC+ interface converter via

selector switch needs to be set for your particular
configuration.
If you are using a 1746-P1 or 1746-P2 power supply, the AIC+
interface converter is the only device that can be connected to
that power supply.
Always connect the CHS GND (chassis ground) terminal to the
nearest earth ground. This connection must be made whether
or not an external 24V dc supply is used.

To prevent confusion when installing the communication cable, trim the white and blue striped wire
immediately after the insulation jacket is removed. This wire is not used by DH-485.
Only one connector at the end of the link must have Terminals 1 and
2 jumpered together. This provides an earth-ground connection for
the shield of the communication cable.
Both ends of the network must have Terminals 5 and 6 jumpered
together. This connects the termination impedance (120 Ω) that is built
into each AIC and AIC+ interface converter as required by the RS-485
specification.

An 8-pin mini-DIN connector is used for making connections to the RS-232 (8-pin mini-DIN) communication
port. This connector is not commercially available. If you are making a cable to connect to the RS-232 (8-pin
mini-DIN) communication port, you must configure your cable to connect to the Allen-Bradley cable.

Hardware Handshaking
To implement hardware handshaking, use cables that support the
following signals.

Signal Definition
Function
RTS active
An input to AIC+ interface converter port.
CTS active
An output from AIC+ interface converter
port.
When hardware handshaking is used, the auto transmit delay
(turnaround time) is zero.

(1)
You can connect two DF1 Full-duplex devices together with one AIC+ interface converter.
(2)
Any communication coming off of the RS-485 line will not drive the carrier detect lines on the RS-232 (DB-9,
DTE) communication port and the RS-232 (8-pin mini-DIN) communication port. If the devices require carrier
detect high, it must be jumpered high locally at the device’s RS-232 port. Devices on RS-232 (DB-9, DTE)
communication port and RS-232 (8-pin mini-DIN) communication port can drive the other RS-232 ports
handshaking lines and the RS-485 transmitter.

Auto Transmit Delay
(turnaround time)
Auto Transmit Delay is measured from the time the AIC+ interface
converter transmits its last mark out of the RS-485 port, until the delay
time expires. The AIC+ interface converter will not accept RS-485 port
data during the Auto Transmit Delay time.
