There are a lot of different cloud services in the Internet working as a storage to accumulate telemetry data from IoT devices. It’s quite comfortable services. You don’t need to spend some time to install a server to collect data … Continue reading
There are a lot of different variants of RS-485 shields for Arduino: https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/RS485_CAN_Shield https://www.tinyosshop.com/arduino-rs232-rs485-shield https://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/IO_Expansion_Shield_For_Arduino(V5)_(SKU:_DFR0088) https://www.hwhardsoft.de/english/projects/rs485-arduino/ Example of using the shield with Modbus RTU termo sensor. Example, how to work with not expensive Arduino RS485 Shield ordered from Aliexpress.
To test a device management by Modbus RTU commands, we use the circuitry of 4 relays controlled by the STM8S103 controller. (Relay MCU 4-way relay-communication board (RS-485). Manage the relay To turn a relay on/off we will use Modbus “Write Single Coil … Continue reading
Modbus RTU (RS485 interface) to Modbus TCP converters from the top producers like Moxa, Advantech, Schneider, ABB and etc. are quite expensive. Of course, the quality and reliability of these industrial devices are really very high. Sometimes the most important parameter … Continue reading
