LonTalk Adapter Card - 02/07/19 10:31 PM

Does anybody know where I can buy a LonTalk Adapter card? The older credit card type. I know these are discontinued for a newer model. Or does anybody know what newer LonTalk adapter I need to buy with the drivers & setup procedures? I have an LN board on a Tac 20 I need to setup.

Echelon TP/FT-10 is the USB adapter. Uses the same cable.

Dirt, do the same drivers work for this within ims and advanced Lon Manager like the old card used?

You have to download a driver for it and change a setting in IMS but everything else is the same.

If you have IMS Ver 2.4.x.x the USB is not a selectable option until later IMS for LON. You can use a serial lon talk adapter (SLTA). If you do end up with a SLTA and only have one serial port, use your serial port for SLTA . Get a PCMCIA to serial for your second serial port. All Drivers are available on Echelon website. I believe IMS Ver 2.5 and above will allow you to select the U10 USB Lon Talk Adapter. I see the U10's on ebay for about $200. The SLTA are hard to find like PCC-10 Card.

Unfortunately our IMS tools are 2.4.x.x. We need to get our hands on a SLTA PCC 10 Card to get this LN loaded with the right config file.

Pcc-10 cards are hard to find anymore. This will work in place of it.


Opps sorry you need a newer IMS for this to work.

Call to Echelon for the PCC 10, the company what I am working for bought one last year.
