Specifications

The RS485-ISO adapter provides electrically isolated conversion from RS-232 on
the main 7W2 connector to RS-485. The adapter comes standard with a 10-foot
power cable and two parallel 4 pin Molex RS-485 connectors.

RS-485 provides improved noise immunity over cable lengths of up to 1,000 ft
(305m). It also allows you to operate a network of up to 120 SmartMotor servos
in parallel, rather than daisy-chaining the communications from one motor to the
next.

The adapter draws power and ground from the SmartMotor main connector (pins 2
and 5). It does require the use of the main connector G-Sync line (pin 1) for readwrite
control of the 485 transceiver.

The RS485-ISO communications adapter can be ordered with or without the power
cable (no cable P/N: RS485ISO-NOCBL).
