Boards for RS-485-Based Applications Evaluate Circuit Protection
Page 1 of 1
Two new evaluation boards for RS-485-based applications serve as a design resource that streamlines evaluating circuit protection on RS-485 serial device ports. To meet the required industry standards on RS-485 port interfaces, the new boards from Bourns provide two different evaluation approaches. The RS-485EVALBOARD1 includes two Bourns TBU High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), two Bourns fast-acting GDTs and two Bourns TVS diodes. The RS-485EVALBOARD2 uses Bourns TBU High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), MOVs and TVS products.
Bourns designed the evaluation boards to help developers more quickly and easily determine the circuit protection required for their applications that use RS-485 serial device ports. Bourns’ RS-485 evaluation boards are offered through the company’s distribution sales partners, with inventory available immediately at Digi-Key, Farnell and Mouser. As a pricing example, the Bourns RS-485EVALBOARD2 is priced at $20.00 in 10 piece quantities.
