FAQ - USB to rs485 converter

You can insert more than one, which has been verified by experiment.

It can be modified. It can be modified if it does not conflict with the existing COM port that comes with the computer. Specific method: right-click on the “communication port COM?” to be modified—-left click to select “Properties”—-left click to select “port settings”—-left click to select “advanced” — Select the COM port that does not conflict with the computer in the “COM port number”.

First, check whether the wiring is correct, it is usually a wiring problem; for USB to 485: If the communication distance is too long, check whether the 120R matching resistance at the beginning and end of the bus is correctly connected, etc.

For compatible assembled computers, be sure to plug the conversion cable into the USB port on the back of the motherboard. It may be better for branded computers, but it is also recommended to plug it into the USB port on the back of the motherboard. Notebooks generally do not have this problem.

It is usually used with our rs485 sensor equipment and directly connected to the computer to obtain the value.

1. Data communication failure

Check whether the USB interface is normal, you can try another USB interface or another computer
Check whether the RS485 output interface wiring is correct
Check whether the USB data cable is normal
Check whether the wiring terminals are well connected
Observe whether the red indicator light flashes when receiving data
Observe whether the green indicator light flashes when sending data


2. Data loss or error

Check whether the data communication baud rate, format, etc. are consistent
Check whether the 485A and 485B of USB to 485 are connected to the 485A and 485B of other devices. Make sure that the two terminals with the same name are connected
