Overview
Although RS-232 serial ports are found on almost every
computer, because of their slow transmission speeds, limited
range, and limited networking capabilities, they are not an
effective solution for industrial strength long distance
communications systems.
Systems based on the RS-485 standard, however, utilize
different voltage lines for the data and control signals, so they are
not subject to the RS-232 limitations.
The IC-485S / IC-485SI is a bidirectional converter that
transparently converts RS-232 signals to RS-485 signals (and
vice versa). The IC-485S / IC-485SI provides Point-to-Point;
Multidrop; and Simplex operations over distances of up to 1200
m (4000 ft.), thus permitting the creation of reliable long distance
data communications systems using standard computer
hardware.

switch configuration
The IC-485S / IC-485SI’s operating mode parameters are set
with two slide switches:

Terminology
Explanations of the SW! and SW2 terms are given in the table
below:
Term
Explanation
DCE
Data Communications Equipment; if the IC-485S /
IC-485SI is going to be plugged into a DTE
device, the IC-485S / IC-485SI must be set to
DCE.
DTE
Data Terminating Equipment; if the IC-485S / IC485SI is going to be plugged into a DCE device,,
the IC-485S / IC-485SI must be set to DTE.
TxON,, RxON
This setting is used in Point-to-Point operations,,
in which the unit is always in Transmitting and
Receiving Mode.
TxRTS, RxRTS This setting is used in Multidrop operations, in
which the unit is in Transmitting Mode when the
RTS signal is high, and is in Receiving Mode
when the RTS signal is low.
TxRTS, RxON
This setting is used in Multidrop Full Duplex
operations to monitor the RS-485 line signals.
Receiving Mode is always ON. Transmitting mode
only occurs when the RTS signal is high.
-8-
Operating Modes
The IC-485S / IC-485SI supports four operating modes: Point-toPoint; Multidrop; Simplex; and Monitor (IC-485S only). Point-toPoint and Multidrop can be configured for Full or Half Duplex.
Each of the operating modes is explained in the sections that
follow.
Point-to-Point
A Point-to-Point configuration is one in which two devices,
located at two different places are linked for communication by a
pair of IC-485S or IC-485SI units. There are two configurations:
Point-to-Point Full Duplex, and Point-to-Point Half Duplex.
1. Point-to-Point Full Duplex
Š Point-to-Point Full Duplex uses reverse four wire cabling
as shown in the diagram below:

Š For both IC-485S / IC-485SI units, set SW1 to DCE or DTE
depending on what type of device the IC-485S / IC-485SI
will plug into (if it will plug into a DCE device, configure it
for DTE, and vice versa).
Š For both IC-485S / IC-485SI units, set SW2 to TxON,
RxON.

2. Point-to-Point 2 Wire Half Duplex
Š Point-to-Point Half Duplex uses straight through four wire
cabling, as shown in the diagram below:

will plug into (if it will plug into a DCE device, configure it
for DTE, and vice versa).
Š For both IC-485S / IC-485SI units, set SW2 to TxRTS,
RxRTS.
Note: The RTS signal is controlled by an external software
command. The IC-485S / IC-485SI has no capability to
control this signal by itself

Multidrop
A Multidrop configuration is one in which more than two devices
are linked for communication using several IC-485S / IC-485SI
units.
One of the devices that one of the IC-485S / IC-485SIs connects
to is designated as the Master device. All the remaining devices
that the rest of the IC-485S / IC-485SIs connect to are designated
as Slave devices. There are two configurations: Multidrop Full
Duplex, and Multidrop Half Duplex.
1. Multidrop 4 Wire Full Duplex
Š Multidrop Full Duplex uses reverse four wire cabling to link
all the connected IC-485S / IC-485SI units:

will plug into (if it will plug into a DCE device, configure it
for DTE, and vice versa).
Š For the Master unit, set SW2 to TxON, RxON.
Š For all Slave units, set SW2 to TxRTS, RxON.

Š For all IC-485S / IC-485SI units set SW2 to TxRTS,
RxRTS.
Note: The RTS signal is controlled by an external software
command.The IC-485S / IC-485SI has no capability to
control this signal by itself.
- 12 -
Simplex
A Simplex configuration is one in which more than two devices
are linked for communication using several IC-485S / IC-485SI
units in a manner similar to Multidrop. The difference is that in a
Simplex configuration, the Master device can only talk, and the
Slave devices can only listen.
Š Simplex uses reverse two wire cabling to link all the
connected IC-485S / IC-485SI units, as shown in the figure
below:

for DTE, and vice versa).
Š For all of the units (Master and Slave), set SW2 to TxON,
RxON.

Monitor IIX-485S Only!
With Monitor Mode, the RS-485S can be wired to the lines of an
RS-485 or RS-422 device to monitor the line signals. In this
configuration, the RS-485S changes the functions of T+ and T- to
R’+ and R’- respectively.

Note: 1. The RTS must be Low in Monitor Mode.
2. The R+ and R- signals are converted and linked to the
RS-232 port, DB-25 pin 3. The R’+ and R’- (T+ and T-)
signals are converted and linked to the RS-232 port,
DB-25 pin 2.

Installation
1. Set each IC-485S / IC-485SI’s configuration switches
according to the information provided in the Switch
Configuration and Operating Modes sections.
2. Plug the IC-485S / IC-485SI’s DB-25 female connector into
the computer’s RS-232C port.
3. Connect the IC-485S / IC-485SI units to each other:
Š Use two or four wire twisted pair cable in a reverse or
straight through configuration according to the information
provided in the Switch Configuration and Operating Modes
sections.
Š For the IC-485S, you may use either the RJ-11 telephone
socket, or wire directly to the Terminal Block (See the
Terminal Block section for pin assignment details).
Š For the IC-485SI, you must ground the device by
connecting a grounding wire from the Grounding Tab to the
grounding source.
Note: 1. When tightening the terminal connector screws it is
recommended to use a Phillips PH1 Screwdriver.
2. Over-tightening the terminal connector screws may
result in damage to your IC-485S or IC-485SI and
difficulty loosening the screws.
4. Power on the computers. The units are now ready for
operation.

Appendix
The Terminal Block
The four screw terminal block has different pin assignments
depending on the operating mode:
Š In DCE/DTE mode, terminals 1 (+V) and 2 (-V) are configured
to transmit data (the transmitter); while terminals 3 (-V) and 4
(+V) are configured to receive data (the receiver).
Š In Monitor mode (IC-485S only), terminals 1 and 2 are,
respectively, the positive and negative of receiver 1; while
terminals 3 and 4 are, respectively, the positive and negative
of receiver 2.

dumb terminal to the unit and do the following:
1. Set SW1 to DCE (if the dumb terminal is configured for DCE).
2. Set SW2 to TxON, RxON.
3. Connect a wire from pin 1 (Tx+) to pin 4 (Rx+)
4. Connect a wire from pin 2 (Tx-) to pin 3 (Rx-)
5. Set the terminal to full duplex and enter data.
If the data displays on the screen, the internal circuit is
operational.
