Re: Arduino Nano Modbus RTU

Hi James! I generated your software for Atmega328P target on my Flowcode 7 and changed the name to shorter one to get it into my Arduino Uno. Without any changes, it works on my Uno as specified. I unfortunately dont have Nano at hand, but two things come into my mind: You could add a start-up delay...

Re: Arduino Nano Modbus RTU

Hi, did you check the fusebits were correct for nano? (clockspeed etc?)

Can you try to generate the .hex for Uno target and then program Nano with it and check does it still work same way?

Re: Arduino Nano Modbus RTU

Can you try to generate the program for Atmega328p target and program the generated .hex to arduino with Arduino Xloader tool (you might not be able to do this if you don't have AVR pack) ? This way you would make the effectivily same code that could run on AtMega328p on Nano and Uno? This would rul...

Hi! Have you tried loopback test at your modbus RTU speed and putty to test out that the serial passthrough really works? Are you sure the USB serial adapter has not reset the speed for some reason?

Re: PCB layout and schematic software

I earlier mentioned Altium Circuit Studio, it has .step export natively and you can download components from mouser to It directly if not intrested in building own checked library.

Phoenix has pretty good library on samacsys for Altium. Most are Community or in-house checked.

One problem with directly using excel inside a programming platform is that all language versions of excel are highly localized, like the "AND" is "JA" in finnish version, or "SQRT" is "NELIÖJUURI"... Would be better to use something "pretty standard"...

Re: RS485 Battery Stack and Common Ground

Hi! To prevent signal on the RS485 bus from "reflecting", you should add termination resistors to each end of the bus. Missing termination or unbalanced termination could make the bus act weird on higher data speeds or on emi disturbance. RS485 is differential signal, so no common groundin...
