USB to RS485 adapters (HIGH SPEED)
Our Hi-Speed USB to RS485 adapters make it quick and simple to connect one or more RS485 devices to a USB port on your computer. These adapters use Hi-Speed USB for reduced latency and higher baud rates on the serial side. Using the multi-port models, you can add up to 16 RS485 ports using only one USB port on the computer.
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.
With a variety of port numbers and enclosure styles and easy to install drivers for a range of operating systems, these adapters are ideal for adding one or more RS485 ports to your computer.
