Phone cable in, two phone cables out?


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to put a phone cable into the in port and then have two phone cables coming out of the other ports or can only one out be connected at a time?

I have three controllers, one connected to my pc and two others that are in opposite directions. It would be much shorter to run a wire to each from the first instead of going from the first to the second and then all the way from the second past the first again to the third.

Will it work? I guess I could always just try it.

It is not a supported configuration. RS-485 is a straight line topology. Other topologies, including a Y do not conform, and may cause communication errors.

But, if you keep at least one leg really short, it might work.

But for just about any formal support, the first requirement will likely be to return to standard topology.
