Professional RS422/485 Interface Extension for Arduino Uno.

Some RS485 shields for the Arduino are already available on the market, but these extensions are not suitable for professional use, because they come without a galvanic isolation between the RS485 bus and the Arduino. Without such isolation a damaging of the Arduino or malfunction of the device is possible, because of the large distances of a RS485 bus. Furthermore a full-duplex mode (RS422) is also not integrated.

This shield comes with a lot of additional features:

  • RS485 mode (half duplex)
  • RS422 mode (full duplex)
  • galvanic isolation between Arduino and connected RS485 bus
  • free choice of TX-pin between pins 0-5 
  • free choice of RX-pin between pins 0-5
  • enhanced ESD protection
  • adjustable automatic transceiver switching for RS485 mode
  • adjustable control of transceiver/receiver via pin 6 or 7
  • adjustable Pull-Up, Pull-Down und terminating resistors
  • indicator LEDs for RX and TX 
  • removable block terminal for bus connection
  • many options adjustable via DIP switches
  • stackable headers
  • can be configured for 3.3V and 5V logic

The RS485 is in use in many applications like industrial and home automation (for example MODBUS), lighting control (DMX), video surveillance (for example Pelco D) ...
