The BiSS to PC-USB Adapter enables BiSS or SSI sensors to be connected to a PC easily and at low cost. The USB port supplies the adapter as well as the connected sensor, for which the 5V (up to 50 mA, through Pin 4)* and 12 V (up to 90 mA, through Pin 1)* as galvanically isolated voltages are available. An external wall power supply can also be connected to deliver other voltages or higher currents. The BiSS/SSI communication is accomplished by differential RS422 wires with separate potentials and cycle rates of up to 10 Mbit/sec.
* 100mA for +5V and +12 V available starting from 2008
