Connecting multiple S300 Laserscanners (RS422 devices) to one PC [closed]

Hi, we'd like to build a robot with 360 FOV and plan to use two S300 Laserscanners.

My question is now, how do I connect multiple devices with RS422 Output to one Computer that might have just one (or even no) RS422 input? This document says on page 7 that I need two connections, but some of you guys even use hardware like a NUC that doesn't even have one of those inputs.

I saw a solution where a SPS with serial input was used and then connected via Ethernet to the Navigation PC. But same question here, how do I set up two devices?

Thank you! Stephan

This is not a ROS question, so here isn't the right place to ask. My recommendation would be to contact the manufacturer (or consult the datasheet for the transmission rates).

Well, I didn't think of those tiny RS422 <> USB Converters before and I guess, this "Multi-2/USB Combo" will do it. (?) Is the speed of 921.6 Kbps enough to run two Laserscanners at high performance?

Best, Stephan
