RS-485

RS-485

A TIA/EIA standard for serial multipoint communications lines. It can be implemented with as little as a wire block with four screws or with DB-9 or DB-37 connectors. By using lower-impedance drivers and receivers, RS-485 allows more nodes per line than RS-422. See RS-232 and RS-232/485.

The drives support a range of industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus network protocols, including EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, CANopen, Modbus, Ethernet and RS-485, as well as a proprietary Serial Command Language (SCL) for efficient network communications over Ethernet (UDP or TCP) and RS-485.
Available in field-mount, din-rail mount or rack-mount versions from 1 up to 16 ports along with different Operation temperature/EMC variants, these serial device server series covers all the needs that end-users may have in converting Ethernet to Serial port (RS-232, RS-485, RS-422).
