This converter allows you to control any RS485 device (home automation systems such as our MB bus, cameras, industrial devices) directly from a USB port of a classic PC or a Linux or Windows embedded system. It uses an FTDI chip that ensures maximum stability and compatibility. It is self-powered via the USB port.
This version produced directly by FTDI is the most reliable and professional on the market of USB RS458 converters. As it is produced by the house, the chip is absolutely authentic and 100% operating according to FTDI specifications.
Another advantage is the extreme compactness: it looks like a common USB cable, although at the end of the cable it has a wired connection directly to connect directly to devices or USB RS485 BUS with also the optional use of 5V power lines and signals. configurable optional add-ons and the possibility of directly activating the imported RS485 termination with wire connection if the cable is used at one end of the USB bus.
The converter requires no external power supply and automatically controls the direction of the RS485 data flow.
The FTDI chip allows in its simplest use to be used as a normal virtual COM port to be compatible with all software for Windows and Linux that use this port for RS232 or RS485 communications, moreover the chip is freely configurable and customizable in every its part until you can create your own driver variants or custom devices. FTDI on its website (link above) makes available all the tools to be able to do this in a simple and immediate way, with the possibility of using an advanced management driver without using the virtual COM port to communicate with your application and without the constraint of the legacy. For more information you can contact us.
