FTDI USB to rs485 Cable


FTDI Chip usb to RS485 Cable


The cable works with all Windows and Mac OS versions including the latest Windows 10 and Mac OS X 10.12(Sierra). The USB-RS485 cable is a USB to RS485 levels serial UART converter cable incorporating FTDI's FT232R USB to serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signaling and protocols. The cable provides a fast, simple way to connect devices with an RS485 interface to USB. This cable has 6 outputs: GND(Black), Data-(Yellow), 5vPower(RED), Terminator1(Brown), Data+(Orange), Terminator 2(Green). In the cable, there is a 120 ohm resistor connected in between Terminator 1 and Terminator 2..

About FT232RL

The FT232R is the latest device to be added to FTDI?s range of USB UART interface Integrated Circuit Devices. The FT232R is a USB to serial UART interface with optional clock generator output, and the new FTDIChip-ID? security dongle feature. In addition, asynchronous and synchronous bit bang interface modes are available. USB to serial designs using the FT232R have been further simplified by fully integrating the external EEPROM, clock circuit and USB resistors onto the device.The FT232R adds two new functions compared with its predecessors, effectively making it a "3-in-1" chip for some application areas. The internally generated clock (6MHz, 12MHz, 24MHz, and 48MHz) can be brought out of the device and used to drive a microcontroller or external logic. A unique number (the FTDIChip-ID?) is burnt into the device during manufacture and is readable over USB, thus forming the basis of a security dongle which can be used to protect customer application software from being copied.
