$32.00
SKU USB2-F-5001
Description

Our USB2-F-5001 Full-Speed USB to RS485 adapters make it quick and simple to connect RS485 devices to a USB port on your computer. They use the FT232R chipset from FTDI along with an RS485 line driver/receiver. They feature automatic direction control for the half-duplex RS485 lines.

The units come in a compact, attractive, and hard-wearing plastic enclosure with a variety of mounting options, and Power/Transmit/Receive indication LEDs. They use a standard USB type-B connector (USB type A to USB type B cable supplied).

RS485 is popular for a wide range of control, monitoring, industrial and entertainment applications. However, generally computers don’t have built-in RS485 ports or even slots on the back to add RS485 expansion cards. Connecting via USB offers compatibility across a huge range of computers as well as easier setup and portability.
