I'm trying to connect an RS422 SSI device to a RS422 USB adapter.

Outputs on RS422 device are labelled as:
SCK
CLK
RXD
TXD
GND

Inputs on RS422 adapter are labelled as:
T+
T-
R+/D+
R-/D-
GND

What would be the correct way to connect this up?

Looks like your RS422 USB is differential, hence T+/T- and R+/R-

But your SSI device uses clocks. The SCK might refer to send-clock and CLK as a received clock.

Unless your RS422 adapter is expecting and providing clocks it will play merry havoc with your differential data.

Yeah, not sure if it will work but I'm trying to connect two synchronous serial devices via a PC as below:

SSI RS422 Device 1 > RS422 USB Adapter > PC / COM PORT REDIRECT > RS422 USB Adapter > SSI RS422 Device 2

Why would you do it that way?
If you're just joining two RS422 devices, just use a twisted-pair data cable (not a UTP LAN cable) "Differential signaling can transmit data at rates as high as 10Mb/Sec, or may be sent on cables as long as 1500 meters" [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RS-422]

If you've only got UTP LAN cabling, it should work, but not at the full data rate or the full distance

Once I confirm it working through one PC, I will be looking to extend it over LAN / VPN.
