Convert a DB25 RS-232 port to RS-485 with this compact device.

IC476A-F-R2

Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • Transmits as far as 9 miles (14.5 km) to the RS-485 device*.
  • Internal silicon avalanche diodes dissipate surges up to 600 watts per wire within one millisecond.
  • Supports async data rates up to 115,200 bps and as many as 31 drops.


  • Further Details

  • Interface powered. Plugs right into a DB25 serial port.
  • DTE/DCE slide switch and internal DIP switch for configuration.
  • Ideal for industrial control and data acquisition applications.

  • If you want a modular, compact, and powerful serial-conversion solution, install this Async RS-232 to RS-485 Interface Converter on your PC. It plugs into a DB25 serial port, effectively turning the port into a 2- or 4-wire RS-485 port.

    The converter passes through one control signal and can be configured for various flow control options. You can use it for one-to-one communications or use it to "talk" to many devices spread out across a factory floor.
