RS485 is a standard communication port for various industry and networking equipment and enables easy configuration of local networks and multipoint communications links. Unfortunately, most of the microcontrollers do not support RS485 voltage levels.

MOTG-RS485 provides a high speed and low cost solution for incorporating RS485 Serial communication to your design.

About Modules on the Go (MOTG)

MOTG, Modules on the Go is a concept from 4D Systems revolutionizing embedded design allowing instant and flexible hardware expansion solution.

MOTG modules offer a simple plug and play interface to Universal MOTG BUS (UMI) allowing rapid assembly and maintenance. This removes the hassle of having to solder and end up with a wiring nest. It also allows the designer to easily remove the existing module or add another module instead, which could be very useful during the phase of prototyping.

Importantly, MOTG series was designed with careful consideration for space with its compact and low profile design.
