EHS6T USB: using a USB to RS-485 converter and communicating with Modbus ASCII? | Thales IoT Developer Community

June 16, 2016 - 11:19am, 2852 views

Hello

I would like to use the USB port on the EHS6T to communicate with a device that has a RS-485 port and talks Modbus ASCII. For the hardware connection (connecting to RS-485) I would use a USB to RS-485 converter and then for the software I would send and receive ASCII bytes from our Java program.

Might there be software or driver issues when doing this? If the USB port has an RS-485 converter attached, then can I "simply" send ASCII characters into it and read them out, from our Java program?

Best wishes

Georg
