USB-COM-PLUS Modules

The USB-COM-PLUS modules provide a simple method of adapting legacy serial devices with RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 interfaces to modern USB ports.

USB-COM232-Plus

The USB-COM232-PLUS1 module is a single channel USB to RS-232 communication device. Utilises the FTDI FT232R
The USB-COM232-PLUS2 module is a single USB interface to two independent RS-232 ports, communication device. Utilises the FTDI FT2232H (USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device)
The USB-COM232-PLUS4 module is a single USB interface to four independent RS-232 ports, communication device. Utilises the FTDI FT4232H (USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device)
RS-232 level shifters are included, plus Power/TXD/RXD LEDs

USB-COM422-Plus

The USB-COM422-PLUS1 module is a single channel USB to RS-422 communication device. Utilises the FTDI FT232R
The USB-COM422-PLUS2 module is a single USB interface to two independent RS-422 ports, communication device. Utilises the FTDI FT2232H (USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device)

FTDI Chip Adapter Board

The FTDI Chip adapter board is a USB to dual interface RS485 level serial UART incorporating FTDI’s FT2232H hi-speed USB2.0 to dual serial UART interface IC device. The FT2232H handles all the USB signalling and protocols. This adaptor provides a fast and simple way to connect devices with an RS485 interface to USB. An integrated electronics of the modules utilises the FTDI FT2232H and includes RS485 level shifters plus TXD/RXD LEDs to provide a visual indication of data traffic through the module. This board uses a standard USB-B device connector for connection to an upstream host or hub port. It requires USB device drivers, which is used to make the board appear as a Virtual COM Port (VCP). This allows existing serial communication software such as HyperTerminal to exchange data through the module to a legacy RS485 peripheral device.
