New EIA-485 TerminatorContemporary Controls - New EIA-485 Terminator Provides Fail-Safe Biasing for BACnet MS/TP and Modbus RTU Networks

The 485-TER is a standalone active terminator that is used on popular EIA-485 networks such as Modbus RTU and BACnet MS/TP providing sufficient termination and biasing for stable operation. Fail-safe bias ensures that an un-driven line assumes a defined state. When a head-end device does not have internal bias and termination two 485-TER devices should be installed - one at each end of the network. This will provide stability and error free communication.  The 485-TER can be used with either 2-wire non-isolated EIA-485 networks or 3-wire isolated EIA-485 networks.
