USB to RS485 Adapter [Project]
posted June 27 2014 13:12.37 by spic0m




Brian Dorey made this DIY USB to RS485 adapter:

"We have already made a full-duplex RS485 board to go on the Raspberry Pi to communicate with the slave sensors but we thought it would be easier for debugging to use a USB device on a PC or Mac to communicate with the sensor boards.

We looked for a full-duplex ready-made adapter but all the ones we found are only half duplex devices and as we needed to be able to supply 12 volts via the RJ45 connectors on the slave boards we decided to make our own USB to RS485 full duplex adapter using a USB converter chip from FTDI."
