Quick Overview

The modules operate from a standard 5V power supply and use 5V logic levels allowing them to be interfaced to the hardware serial ports of microcontrollers such as Arduino/PIC etc. The direction of communication can be controlled with just one digital pin (see diagram). It is also possible to connect multiple modules together for communication between 2 or more devices. For even greater distances two modules can be configured as a repeater.

Each module contains one driver and one receiver. Drivers are short-circuited current limited and are protected against excessive power dissipation by thermal shutdown circuitry that places the driver outputs into a high-impedance state. The receiver input has a fail-safe feature that guarantees a logic-high output if the input is open circuit.

This low power transceiver module is based on the Maxim MAX485 IC to allow serial communication over very long cable runs (up 4000 feet / 1200 meters). Serial data can be transmitted in both directions (half-duplex) at a data rate up to 2.5Mbps.
