GPI to RS-232 Converters

The GPI-10 generates an RS-232 output whenever a GPI switch is closed. Up to twenty (20) RS-232 strings can be programmed at the factory, corresponding to the ten GPI input connectors. See Specifications below for four standard firmware versions. Custom programming of the firmware is also available. Please contact us for details. $

GPI-20 – Same as GPI-10, but with twice the capability

The GPI-20 generates an RS-232 output whenever a GPI switch is closed. Up to forty (40) RS-232 strings can be programmed at the factory, corresponding to the twenty GPI input connectors. See Specifications below for standard firmware version. Custom programming of the firmware is also available. Please contact us for details. (No GPI-20K is being produced at this time.)

Standard Firmware for GPI-10
(custom firmware also available)
Standard Firmware for GPI-20
Version A: Used to communicate with our MCG-2 Micro Character Generator. This firmware will call selected pages from the MCG-2's stored memory. Version A: Used primarily with the Pinnacle Systems DekoMOS. This is an update to the Version I-96 firmware, but with double the amount of unique data strings. When terminal #1 is activated, *01<CR> is output, and #01<CR> when terminal #1 is deactivated. When terminal #20 is activated, *20<CR> is output, and #20<CR> when terminal #20 is deactivated, etc. Forty (40) unique data streams are included (from *01 - *20 and #01 - #20). Baud Rate: 9600 8-N-1.
Version E-4: Used primarily with the Pinnacle Systems DekoCast. This firmware causes the GPI-10 to output *01<CR> when terminal #1 is activated, *02<CR> when terminal #2 is activated, etc. Baud Rate: 9600 8-N-1.
Version I-1: Also used with the Pinnacle Systems DekoCast. This firmware causes the GPI-10 to output *1<CR> when terminal #1 is activated and #1<CR> when terminal #1 is deactivated, *2<CR> when terminal #2 is activated and #2<CR> when terminal #2 is deactivated, etc. Baud Rate: 19200 8-N-1.
Version I-96: Used primarily with the Pinnacle Systems DekoMOS. This firmware is a meld of both E-4 and I-1 firmwares. When terminal #1 is activated, *01<CR> is output, and #01<CR> when terminal #1 is deactivated. When terminal #2 is activated, *02<CR> is output, and #02<CR> when terminal #2 is deactivated, etc. Baud Rate: 9600 8-N-1.
