Testing Version 2 of the RS-485 Shield

by Stephen Makonin

Yesterday I received the new PCBs for Fritzing for a RS-485 Shield that will work withe Arduino Due and Maple. This shield has headers to either plug in and XBee module or Electric Imp breakout board for wireless communications. I have tested the Rs-485 communications and all is working well. Next, I will test XBee and Imp communications. Here are some pictures:

    Hello..i hope you van help… i look for some rs485 schemas or devices that that can be addressable to communicate with non-rs485 devices… rs232! Such as rs232>rs485>addressable rs485 and make the rs232 signals for that device… and so on and so on…
