USB44T-B6AB - USB to RS485 / RS422 Bidirectional Serial Converter


Product Description

USB44T-B6AB - USB to RS485/RS422 Bidirectional Converter w/ 6 ft. USB A-B Cable in Boxed Enclosure.

  • This auto transmit unit features bi-directional serial conversion from USB to RS485(2 wire half-duplex), or RS422(4 wire full duplex).
  • A group of jumpers enable the user to customize this device as an RS485 or RS422 bidirectional converter. and configure the transmit bias and termination resistors. Refer to the schematic for details.

  • Optimized for non-isolated office/indoor point to point or multi-drop systems. We do not recommend this unit for outdoor sign application. The IUSB44T or IUSB24AT are better suited for that environment.

  • Transparent to all standard asynchronous formats and data rates supported by the USB interface, up to 921.6 Kbps. No jumpers or settings required. 

  • In RS485 mode, fast auto turn-around, from transmit to receive mode, requires no software delays and eliminates timing problems and data collisions. We pioneered and perfected this leading edge technology.

  • The RS485 driver allows 32 standard loads at 4000 ft. at data rates up to 921.6 Kbps.

  • Isolation resistors and a transcient suppressor bridge help protect the device from destructive electrical noise often found in industrial environments. The SP491EEP driver has high ESD tolerance.

  • Edge mounted LEDs display power and data activity at the RS485 / RS422 interface.

  • Broad environmental range. Temperature: 0C to +70C(32F to +158F). Humidity: 10 to 90% RH(non-condensing)

  • Four(4) easy mount through hole standoffs, which accept #6 hardware, are provided on the circuit board.

  • User connections are a USB type B receptacle, and a 5 position removable screw terminal strip for the RS485/RS422 port. There is no external power connector. Device power is obtained through the USB port.

  • The required "Virtual Com Port" USB driver, for the host computer, is available from under "Drivers". This web site provides drivers for most host operating systems. Some OS's will automatically search for, find, and install the appropriate software/driver. 

  • Accessories available are an enclosure, and a USB cable(6 ft USB type A plug to USB type B plug).

  • Conformal Coating, cable, and connectors, are factory options. Contact us for options help.

  • We feature a family of other similar USB isolated/non-isolated converters that may fit your needs. Check out the USBA4, IUSB24AT, and IUSB44T 

  • R E Smith Inc makes a wide variety of isolated converters that address the electrical noise problems that contribute to unreliable communications, and product failure.  If what you see here is not exactly what you need,               don't hesitate in calling us at 513-874-4796.

  • We also have a new series of Converters and Repeaters that extend the RS485 communications distance far beyond conventional limits. Contact us for information on these leading edge problem solvers.

  • WARNING: Do NOT connect this device to a telephone system under any circumstances. Damage could result to the circuit board and/or your telephone system.
