10 tips for RS-485 design [Infographic] Texas Instruments tackles the most common questions engineers ask when designing RS-485 systems for high noise-immunity and robust communication over long cable lengths.
DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) compiled a list of the top 10 RS-485 design tips, including how to determine maximum cable length, how to decipher termination equations, how to connect bus nodes and more, into an infographic published today.
When designing industrial automation, motion control, e-meter, security electronics or building automation systems, engineers face the challenge of designing for high noise-immunity and robust communication over long cable lengths. TI offers single- or multi-channel, half- or full-duplex, 3.3- or 5-V-supply RS-485 integrated circuits (ICs), with a variety of features, including high-voltage standoff, fail-safe receivers and integrated isolation. Evaluation kits, simulation models, and application notes make it easy to complete the design.
