Overview
Chapter 1 Overview
1.1 Introduction
Advantech’s ADAM-4561 allows PC users to connect their serial devices
to systems that use USB interface. By attaching the ADAM4561 to a PC, it will no longer be necessary to open the chassis or turn off
the PC to install the hub. With the ADAM-4561, the user instantly gets one
extra high-speed RS-232/422/485 ports. In addition, since the power is
derived from the USB port, there are not any cumbersome power adapters.
This makes the ADAM-4561 especially suitable for printers, POS system
and industrial control devices.
Compliant with USB v1.1, the ADAM-4561 features a lot of powerful functions such as high-speed 115.2 Kbps, support for various operat- ing systems, independent RS-232/422/485 port and more. By simply plugging in a
USB hub, the ADAM-4561 eliminates configuration issues associated with
expensive, antiquated card solutions. This eliminates the need to remove
the PC cover and or to reboot the operating system during installation.
The user only installs the driver, and follows the on-screen instructions.
This reduces a lot of program- ming time.
The USB interface, now standard on virtually all new PCs, offers significant advantages over earlier bus types. A signal USB interface can connect up to 127 devices at data rates up to 12 Mbps. This kind of easy and
convenient connectivity means that your network can grow with your
needs.

Chapter 2 Installation & Setup
2.1 Hardware Installation
2.1.1 Network Architecture
Traditional serial port communication uses a COM port board that slides
into one of the slots at the back of your PC. With the ADAM- 4561, you
can access the COM port from USB ports. The ADAM-4561 can be integrated into the network architecture of any protocol.
Note:
All the operating systems on your host
mustsupport USB v1.1 standard, such as Windows 98/ME/2000. USB devices are used in
“Master-Slave” architecture. Before you use
ADAM-4561, you must determine the master
PC
The following illustration shows the network architecture:
Figure 2.1: Network Architecture
ADAM-4561 User Manual

2.1.2 Network Connection
When using the ADAM-4561, you will simply plug one end of USB cable
(included in package) into ADAM-4561, and the other end into the USB
hub or your host PC.
2.1.3 Serial Connection
The model of the ADAM-4561 that you purchased has 10 pin connec- tor
for connecting serial ports on the bottom of module. Only one set of
twisted-pair cables is required to transmit both Data and RTS signals for
RS-485 interface.
Note:
In USB v1.1 standard, If you have used the
COM3, COM4….. COMn of host PC. When
you plug ADAM-4561 in the host PC, the COM
port will be COMn+1.

2.1.4 Jumper Settings
You can use JP1 on ADAM-4561 to configure serial mode. Please refer to
the picture below for Jumper JP1 location.
You can choose “On (RS-422 Master)” or “Auto (RS-422 Slave/RS-485
Automatic Direction Control)” for serial mode. Please refer to the picture
below.
For RS-485, if the JP1 is set to “Auto”, the driver automatically senses
the direction of the data flow and switches the direction of transmission.
Handshaking is unnecessary. For RS-422, if the JP1 is set to “Auto”, it
will become RS-422 slave. If the JP1 is set to “On”, the driver is always
enabled, and always in high or low status. The user must select the mode
before beginning RS-422 application.
