Product Description
 
The UM3487E series are +3.3V powered ±15kV ESD protected, fail-safe, hot-swappable, auto polarity reversal RS-485 transceivers. The device includes fail-safe circuitry, which guarantees a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open, shorted or idle. This means that the receiver output will be logic high if all transmitters on a terminated bus are disabled (high impedance). The UM3487E features reduced slew-rate driver that minimizes EMI and reduces reflections caused by improperly terminated cables, allowing error-free data transmission up to 500kbps. All transmitter outputs and receiver inputs are protected to ±15kV using the Human Body Model and IEC61000-4-2, Air-Gap Discharge.
The UM3487E includes cable auto-invert functions that reverse the polarity of the RS485 bus pins in case the cable is misconnected. Receiver’s full fail-safe features are maintained even when the receiver polarity has been reversed.
The transceivers typically draw 300μA of supply current when unloaded, or when fully loaded with the drivers disabled. The device has a 1/8-unit-load receiver input impedance that allows up to 256 transceivers on the bus and is intended for half-duplex communications.
