The USB-RS422 cable is a USB to
RS422 levels serial UART converter cable incorporating FTDI’s
USB to serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB
signalling and protocols. The cable provides a fast, simple way to
connect devices with a RS422 interface to USB.
Each USB-RS422 cable contains a small internal
electronic circuit board, utilising the
FT232R, which is encapsulated
into the USB connector end of the cable. The integrated electronics also
include the RS422 transceiver plus Tx and Rx LEDs which give a visual
indication of traffic on the cable (if transparent USB connector mould
specified). The other end of the cable is bare, tinned wire ended
connections by default, but can be customised using different connectors
to support various applications.
Cables are FCC, CE, RoHS compliant.
