The MAX3060E/MAX3061E/MAX3062E high-speed transceivers for RS-485/RS-422 communication contain one driver and one receiver. These devices feature failsafe circuitry, which guarantees a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open or shorted. This means that the receiver output is a logic high if all
transmitters on a terminated bus are disabled (high impedance).
The MAX3060E features slew-rate-limited drivers that minimize EMI and reduce reflections caused by improperly terminated cables, allowing error-free data transmission up to 115kbps. The MAX3061E, also slewrate limited, transmits up to 500kbps.
