RS232 TO RS422, RS485 CONVERTER

These converters are designed around the LTC490 and the LTC485 interface chips. They connect in-line with the PC com port to provide signal conversions from the RS232C to RS422 differential line signals.

The units convert the TX and RX signals providing 4-wire (RS422) and 2-wire (RS485) buss implementations and provide a hardware RS232 handshaking pair for data flow control.

The input connection is pre-wired to take its power from the +DTR or +RTS connection and to provide feedback to the other input connections to indicate that the device is on-line.
