UniStream & RS485

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've already posted about this in the Visilogic forums, but I've recently upgraded to UniStream.

 

For my application I'm using a water quality sensor that has RS485 comm protocol.

 

Can I use the RS485 socket on the CPU to communicate with this sensor? Or do I need a dedicated Comm module?

UniStream looks great! Just getting to grip with the differences between it and Visilogic!

 

 

Thanks in Advance

The CPU hosts a RS 485 port that you can use for communication. This port is available for use. 

You can set it up as a configuration in the process tree on the right hand side of the software. It does not require configuration function blocks such as VisiLogic would.

I hope this helps to clarify.
