ZC-120 RS-485 to Z-Wave Converter

RS-485 (Recommended Standard 485) is a standard maintained by the Electronics Industry Alliance (EIA). RS-485, also known as TIA/EIA-485-A, was created to meet the needs of electronic component designers for longer cable lengths, increased throughput and control of multiple devices.

Z-Wave to RS-485

The unique Z-Wave to RS-485 Converter is created to give the great wireless capability to those existing devices and products built with RS-485 communication ports. It provides an effective means to extend product lines without drastically redesigning existing products and systems. When Z-Wave to RS-485 Converter is used as the wireless link, existing products and systems may be extended with no disruption and easily to be included into a Z-Wave network.


  • Include the non-ZWAVE products into a Z-Wave network
  • Ease of use and deployment
  • Cost effective
  • Extended range capabilities
  • Portability
  • Ease and flexibility of installation
