USB to RS485 Interface Converter

 

The USB-2-RS485 device is an USB to RS485 interface converter. It adds a standard 2-wire half-duplex RS485 bus interface to computers with USB interface.

The USB interface of the device is USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 compatible. The RS485 interface supports all common data rates up to 3Mbit/s. No additional power supply is required as the device is powered through the USB bus.

This device is supported by all major operating systems: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android.

A virtual COM port driver is included, that is, the RS485 interface can be accessed as a standard serial COM port e.g. using any terminal program like HyperTerminal (supplied with all versions of Microsoft Windows).

If the another device which is connected to the RS485 bus has its own power supply, then use a wire 4, 5 and 6 only. The wires 1, 2 and 3 are used to power other devices connected to the RS485 bus. The supply voltage of these devices must be 5V.

The following figure shows the connection of devices to the RS485 bus.
