A3278 : Gilson, 506C
The Gilson 506C System Interface connects your computer to many Gilson instruments. It permits bi-directional communication by interconverting the RS-232 signal levels used by computers and the RS-422/485 signal levels required by the Gilson Serial Input/Output Channel (GSIOC).
Provides four contact inputs and six contact outputs that allow your computer to control instruments not equipped for GSIOC operation
The state of the contacts can be read or changed using appropriate software (such as Gilson control software)
The system interface incorporates four analog data inputs that can be read by the computer via the GSIOC
Using these data inputs, your computer can read the signal from any detector or monitor that provides a –100 mV to +1.0 V analog input
