Product Details

FTDI Chip USB to RS-422 Converter Cable Wire Ended with LED.

USB to UART convertor cables have RS422 level UART signals plus offer you a quick and simple path connecting to an RS422 interface to USB. The USB connection has a built-in, small circuit board, featuring the FT232RQ UART interface IC handling all the USB signalling and protocols. Also included within are 2 LED’s providing a visual of the traffic flow received and transmitted. One end of the cable is supplied bare showing the tinned wire connections ready to be customised as required. Cables are available in various lengths, USB compliant, USB powered and have UART data transfer rate of 3 Mbaud.
