» RS-485 10: Modbus Slave ACC & Battery Level (v12)

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 how to configure the Waspmote as a Modbus slave device.

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.
- See the example RS-485_11_modbus_master_acc_battery_level
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12

 *  ------ [RS-485_10] Modbus Slave ACC and Battery level -------- 
 *   
 *  This sketch shows the use of the Modbus communication protocol over 
 *  RS-485 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. 
 *  
 *  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. 
 *
 *  Note: See the example RS-485_11_modbus_master_acc_battery_level
