USB to Industrial Single RS-422/485 Adapter
Introduction of USB-COMi and USB-COMi-SI
The USB-COMi and USB-COMi-SI Industrial Single RS-422/485 Adapters are
designed to make serial port expansion quick and simple. Connecting to a USB port
on your computer or USB hub, the USB Serial Adapter instantly adds one industrial
RS-422/485 multi-electrical interface serial communication port to your system. By
taking advantage of the USB bus, the USB Serial Adapter makes it easier than ever
to add one RS-422/485 port and serial devices to your system with easy plug and
play and hot plug features. Adapting the new technology, the serial port expansion
now takes the new bus with easy and convenient connectivity.
Plugging the USB-COMi or USB-COMi-SI USB to Industrial Single Serial Adapter to
the USB port, the adapter is automatically detected and installed. There are no IRQ
& COM port conflicts, since the port doesn't require any additional IRQ, DMA,
memory as resources on the system. The RS-422/485 port functions as native
Windows COM port, and it is compatible with Windows serial communication
applications. The adapter is designed with external switches to set RS-422 or
RS-485 ports and different operation modes conveniently.
The USB Serial Adapter provides instant connectivity to RS-422/485 communication
devices for factory automation equipment, multi-drop data collection devices,
barcode readers, time clocks, scales, data entry terminals, ATMs and serial
communication in harsh environment. The USB to Serial Adapter is suitable for
remote access, retail and industrial application, data collection and other
applications requiring high speed RS-422/485 communication ports.
Optical Isolation & Surge Protection (USB-COMi-SI)
Optical isolation and surge protection are available to USB-COMi-SI.
The output port Of USB-COMi-SI is optically isolated with 2000 Volt DC optical
isolation. The optical isolation protects your PC or notebook from spikes and
surges on the RS-422/485 network, by converting the electrical pulse into an optical
signal and then changing it back into an electrical pulse. Your computer is well
protected, since the surges and spikes cannot cross the optical link. Each
RS-422/485 port is individually protected by surge protector to withstand
electrostatic discharge and power surges up to 25KV ESD. Surge suppression on all
signals prevent from damages caused by lightning or high voltage. USB-COMi-SI,
with galvanic isolated RS-422/485 port, provides extended electrical safety in
industrial application.

Hardware Installation
Inside the unit, there is one 3-pin DIP switch for selection of operation mode. You
need to open up the plastic housing by using a screw driver as shown below. You
can set the switch settings to RS-422 or RS-485 mode as per the requirements of
your application.
Open the case
You need to install driver first, prior to hardware installation. After the setting of DIP
switch and connecting USB cable to the adapter, you then start driver installation.

Termination and BIAS Option Configuration
Inside the unit, there is one block of 3 x 7 (21 pin) jumpers which are configured to
enable Tx, Rx, CTS 120 Ohm termination resistors and Tx, Rx 750 Ohm BIAS
resistor.
You will need to open up the case and set the jumper setting to activate termination
and BIAS as per the requirements of your application.

This jumper should be populated for pull-up Tx+.
Pull-down Tx- to GND by 750 Ohm BIAS resistor.
This jumper should be populated for pull-down Tx- .
Rx Termination of 120 Ohm.
This jumper should always be populated for RS-422 mode.
Pull-up Rx+ to VCC by 750 Ohm BIAS resistor.
This jumper should be populated for pull-up Rx+
Pull-down Rx- to GND by 750 Ohm BIAS resistor.
This jumper should be populated for pull-down Rx- .
CTS Termination of 120 Ohm.
This jumper should always be populated for RS-422 mode.
Note : Sometimes, when operating in RS-422 or RS-485, it is necessary to configure
termination and BIASing of the data transmission lines. Generally this must be done
in the cabling, since this depends on the installation of connections. Before
applying the option, check your cable specification for proper impedance matching.
