This is the bare board version (no connectors assembled) of the in485P-TBPLUG and in485P-TBPCB. For more details on this product, click on one of the two given links.

The in485P is a RS-485 interface module. It is part of our iMod product range. It enables 3.3V devices (like a Microcontroller for example) to communicate with nodes on a RS-485 network. It uses a 1/8 load transceiver chip, enabling 256 nodes on a single bus. It uses the 3.3V Sipex SP3078E RS-485/RS-422 Transceiver chip, which has a 1/8 Load and Failsafe operation. For details on the SP3078, download it's datasheet from

The TB05B-F350-W4 or TB05P-M350-H4 terminal blocks can be soldered into the space for a terminal block connector on the PCB. Any standard 2.54mm (0.1") grid pin header, or press-fit pin header can be soldered into the two positions (X1 and X2) on the PCB left for pin headers. If required, wires can also of course be soldered onto the PCB in stead of connectors.
