» RS-232 03: Modbus Slave ACC & Battery (v12)

This sketch shows the use of the Modbus communication protocol over RS-232 standard, and the use of the main functions of the library. 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.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x RS-232

Notes

- This example shows how to configure the Waspmote as a Modbus slave device. The Waspmote stores the ACC values and the battery level in the Modbus register, and sends these values to the Master when a request is received.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12
