Connecting USS device to a PC


Thread Starter


dear sir: I am a beginner in industry automation, can you give me some advice on connecting a uss device (such as 6se3213 micromaster) to a PC. since pc is EIA 232C and uss is EIA 485, can just a rs232 to rs485 converter do all the job?

USS protocol uses RS485. You can find the details from siemens product support web page: or you can ask for a copy of the details of the protocol from siemens local office (contact micromaster people, not PLC ones). Unfortunately I have only the paper version. Hakan Ozevin
