A CDE Definition
A TIA/EIA standard for serial multipoint communications lines. It can be implemented with as little as a wire block with four screws or with DB-9 or DB-37 connectors. By using lower-impedance drivers and receivers, RS-485 allows more nodes per line than RS-422. See RS-232 and RS-232/485.
