Last modified: Thursday, December 05, 2002 

An Electronics Industry Alliance (EIA) standard for multipoint communications. It supports several types of connectors, including DB-9 and DB-37. RS-485 is similar to RS-422 but can support more nodes per line because it uses lower-impedance drivers and receivers.
