The input side mates directly with a PC USB port. This makes
the adapters an ideal solution for connecting external RS-485 equipment
up to your desktop, portable or laptop PC. There are 2 sets of 2 terminals for use in attaching up to 15 RS485 type devices
to the adapter using discrete wire. The 2nd terminal pair can also provide a convenient location to place a 120 ohm
terminating resistor if needed to accommodate long CAT-5 cable runs.

For Ethernet to RS485 application, take a look at our ANC-6132. The adapter acts as a RS485/422 and RS232
port working very similiar to the USB to RS-485 adapter, but it can be remotely attached to your intranet (local ethernet).
If you need RS485 levels from a PC serial comport, our ANC-6185 provides a
terminal block or RJ-45 connector for use with discrete CAT-5 wiring or RJ-45 connectors. The ANC-6085 gives
the user RS485/422 interfacing through a DB-9F (female 9-pin D-shell connector) with SMPTE pinouts matching those used by many manufactures
of multimedia and industrial controllers.
The adapter appears to the computer as an added serial port after the driver software is installed. The
user simply changes the serial port selection in their application software to direct serial output to the newly added 'COMport' that is the
