The ISL3247xE are fault-protected, extended common-mode range differential transceivers that exceed the RS-485 and RS-422 standards for balanced communication. The RS-485 bus pins (driver outputs and receiver inputs) are fault protected against overvoltages up to ±60V and are protected against ±16. 5kV ESD strikes without latch-up. Additionally, these transceivers operate in environments with common-mode voltages up to ±15V (exceeds the RS-485 requirement), making this fault-protected RS-485 family one of the most robust on the market. The transmitters (Tx) deliver an exceptional 2. 5V (typical) differential output voltage into the RS-485 specified 54Ω load. This yields better noise immunity than standard RS-485 ICs or allows up to six 120Ω terminations in star topologies. The receiver (Rx) inputs feature a full fail-safe design that ensures a logic high Rx output if the Rx inputs are floating, shorted, or on a terminated but undriven (idle) bus. The Rx outputs feature high drive levels; typically, 15mA at VOL = 1V (to ease the design of opto-coupled isolated interfaces). Half duplex (Rx inputs and Tx outputs multiplexed together) and full duplex pinouts are available. For a fault-protected RS-485 transceiver with a ±25V extended common-mode range, see the ISL32490E and ISL32483E datasheets.
