 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi All...

I need to recieve two to three channels of NMEA 0183 and send one channel. I looked around for a level converter chip like a MAX232 but for RS-422, but no luck. Is there an easy circuit or chip to use to convert RS-422 to TTL, ideally with electrical isolation?

Thank you.

You mean a part like the MAX485, or one of its quad versions?

Yes, very much like that Bob, thank you! I guess you now know what's coming ;-)

I also ran accross someone who had a line of chips with really good isolation built in. I'll have to find those and post. It was pretty early when I saw them and now I can't remember what company it was :-(

To get isolation you have to use a chip with built in power supply isol. There are many for RS485, MAX3157 can handle a huge ground difference and they call it isolated but I haven't read the specs to see if that's really the case.

MAX1480/1490 are really isolated and ADUM2486/82/87 are as well I think.

Another way to do it is use simple 5v isolation chips (or optocouplers) and a small isol power supply. Look at ISO7240/1/2/3, ISO7220/1, IL15/16/17, ADUM1210.
