Product Details

MOTG RS-485 Add-On Module

The 4D Systems MOTG (Modules on the Go) product family provides an innovative plug and play solution for adding key functionalities to 4D Systems gen4 LCD Display Modules.

Utilising a modular concept, the MOTG range provides a simple method for swift hardware expansion, allowing rapid design and maintenance of applications requiring a display. WiFi, Bluetooth, RS-232, RS-485 and enhanced audio can easily be added to an LCD display through simply plugging in the appropriate module into an installed MOTG interface board.

This MOTG RS-485 Add-On Module adds RS-485 communication, allowing a gen4 LCD Module to interface with RS-485 devices. The module offers a 12 Mbps data rate and features selectable Tx and Rx pins.

The module utilises the STMicroelectronics ST1480ACDR Transceiver to provide the RS-485 capability.
