The new U-485 is a USB to RS485 converter that converts the PC's USB port directly to a two-wire RS485 interface. The converter is powered directly by the USB port and hence minimal wiring is required to connect your PC to any devices that has two-wire RS485 interface (e.g. All TRiLOGI brand of PLCs have at least 1 built-in RS485 port and on Nano-10 that's its only serial port).
With U-485 you can use the i-TRiLOGI + TLServer software to program a network of M-series, F-series and/or Nano-10 PLCs from a single PC. U-485 is also a great tool for trouble-shooting RS485 communication issues between devices.
