USB TO RS485 PC Adapter Installation

3 posts in this topic

Here is a post that we recently completed on the Automation Direct USB to RS485 Adapter. 

The USB-485M is a 2-wire USB to RS-485 serial communication adapter for RS485 use. It does not require an external power supply or complicated configuration.

It has a Type A (plug) USB connector for the computer side and a universal female RJ45/RJ12 modular connector. This will accept RJ12 and RJ45 plugs.  The USB-485M supports multiple baud rates and is USB V2.0 Compliant.
