What does RS-422 mean?

RS-422 is a technical standard that specifies electrical characteristics of a digital signaling circuit. Differential signaling can transmit data at rates as high as 10 million bits per second, or may be sent on cables as long as 1500 meters. Some systems directly interconnect using RS-422 signals, or RS-422 converters may be used to extend the range of RS-232 connections. The standard only defines signal levels; other properties of a serial interface are set by other standards.
