The ADM485E/ADM487E/ADM1487E are 5 V low power data transceivers with ±15 kV ESD protection suitable for halfduplex communication on multipoint bus transmission lines. They are designed for balanced data transmission and comply with TIA/EIA standards RS-485 and RS-422. The ADM487E and the ADM1487E have a 1/4 unit load receiver input impedance that allows up to 128 transceivers on a bus, while the ADM485E allow up to 32 transceivers on a bus. Since only one driver is enabled at any time, the output of a disabled or powerdown driver is three-stated to avoid overloading the bus.
The driver outputs are slew rate-limited in order to reduce EMI and data errors caused by reflections from improperly terminated buses. Excessive power dissipation caused by bus contention or output shorting is prevented with a thermal shutdown circuit. The parts are fully specified over the industrial temperature ranges and are available in 8-lead SOIC packages

Solving Isolation Challenges in Industrial Automation
This webcast will discuss the role isolation plays in providing protection and reducing the system bit-error-rate, using the specific design challenges of an RS-485 network. Topics to be covered in this presentation will include: Why and when one should isolate, Types of isolation and their advantages, Design Considerations for an RS-485 node (and how this translates to design considerations for signal isolation) as well as many other topics.
