Hi
Any way to simulate ESP8266 with Arduino in F8 ?
Thanks

Hello,

Yes there are two ways to simulate this component.

1) The component as is will allow you to simulate using the inbuilt TCP/IP DLL, this will test the network communications but not test the module communications.

2) The component simulation can be piped to real world hardware using an injector component, one of the SCADA slave components and the SCADA Slave hardware. Unfortunatley on the Arduino UNO the UART connection is used for the USB comms and so you cannot talk to the ESP8266 at the same time. An ECIO or the SCADA Slave Interface Board would allow you to do this. Or you can simply use a USB to Serial cable and connect directly to the ESP8266 module. Something like this would also work.
