THVD1450: RS485 interface for 1m cable

Part Number: THVD1450

HI team,

i would like to know,

can customer remove the GND line and have no isolation if the cable length is only 1m in RS485? Please kindly share your expertise. Thanks. 

  • This depends not on the length of the cable, but on the actual difference of the two ground voltages.

    The THVD1450 can handle ±15 V differences, which is unlikely to happen for nearby devices.

    Are the two transceivers powered from different supplies? Is there a noise source (e.g., heavy machinery) only on one of the supplies?
