Communication / RS-485:

» RS-485 09: Modbus Slave Mode

This sketch shows the use of the Modbus communication protocol over RS-485 standard, and the use of the main functions of the library. This example shows the use of the Waspmote RS-485 in slave mode.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x RS-485

Notes

- Modbus allows for communication between many devices connected to the same network.
- There are many variants of Modbus protocols, but Waspmote implements the RTU format.
- Modbus RTU is the most common implementation available for Modbus.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v15
