RS-232 and RS-485 guide

Adafruit 1069
A lot of us are still working with RS-232 and RS-485, so this printout would be handy to keep around (PDF).


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Yay! Maybe this means my request for a TTL <–> RS-232 adapter is in the works! 🙂

  2. note that these pin outs are only good for NI hardware and NI hardware is $$$ (but very nice). there isn’t a standard governing serial pin outs so everyone does their own thing…

  3. Actually serial pin outs are standardized. There are different configurations such as a null modem, but that too is a standardized pin out.

  4. RS-245 ?

    RS-485

  5. > Actually serial pin outs are standardized.

    The pin outs are standardized. However, in practice, what the pins are used for is not.

  6. DB9 and DB25 rs232 are standardized. Modular jacks are wildly non-standardized, and 10pin versions are pretty uncommon. Personally, I quite like the cisco 8-pin RJ45 pinout (RTS, DTR, TXD, GND, GND, RXD, DSR, CTS) (which also works using the center 6 pins), but … that’s personal, and it’s been pointed out that it doesn’t map well to standard building UTP schemes. It does let you plug one rj45 directly into another using a standard "rolled" flat cable.
