The in485P-M is an electronic module with a RS-485 interface, and press-fit
It is part of the
Modtronix Presto iMod product range.
It has a DIP switch for enabling bias and terminating resistors, that are required for
a RS-485 master module (end nodes). 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 SP3078, dowload it's datasheet from www.exar.com.
The module has press-fit connectors for easy integration onto a target board, with no soldering
required. It can be mounted on a custom board, a prototype board (like Vero Board), or one of our
Presto SBC Boards.
