Universal and safe
The converter comes with a lot of setup possibilities to cover a wide range of bus applications. All operating modes can be easily selected at the 9 pin connection jack without opening the housing.
By its high isolating strength of 2.5kV rms 1 min, 420V pk working voltage it is usable in critical environments with potential shift and decouples the controlling components from the system bus.
Since multiple RS485 devices can send on a common line the output send driver must be activated only while sending. The activation is done automatically and completely transparent for the application by the converter
Externally selectable Modes
RS422/RS485 Mode, Echo on/off, full/half duplex, termination resistors of RxD and TxD independently activable.
of the data stream with 3 LEDs, easy check for correct connection and driver activation (USB), green: RxD, yellow: TxD, blue: USB activation.
Any baud rate
Latest FTDI chip generation allows the use of non standard baud rates
COM Port compatible
Full PC compatibiliy by transparent access via virtual COM port, for instance COMx (Windows) resp. /dev/ttyUSBx (Linux).
