The KD485 is a multi-purpose interface converter designed to satisfy a wide range of industrial data communications requirements.
The KD485-ADE inserts a CPU (with two serial ports) into the data path. Several standard application programs (“Modes”) are provided in a built-in ROM:
Mode 0: emulates KD485-STD (Interface converter/isolator); and also offers baud rate and character format conversion.
Mode 1: as above, plus Auto Driver Enable. The RS485 driver is automatically controlled according to the presence of data from the RS232 host.
Mode 2: RS485 to RS232 Addressable Adaptor. This makes possible the connection of up to approximately 50 RS232 devices to a 3/5 wire RS485 bus, through which they can be polled by a single Master.
