Wed, 31 Jul 2019 05:32:17 GMT

Hi! I try to read data from device via Modbus RTU protocol. I configured channels 1 and 2 as output and connected to the buses A and B. The request was created normally, after it the device answers on the same buses. How to me to receive the answer? It is advisable to change channels 1 and 2 after forming of the request to input to receive the answer.

Hi, I'm afraid it's not as simple as that. If you wish to emit and receive data on RS485 bus, you need a transceiver. You can connect one SQ output channel to the transceiver data input, another SQ output to the DE (drive enable), and finally, you can listen to the bus with a 3rd SQ input channel. Does that help?
