I'm looking for some help with a PCB design i'm doing, i want to connect a power analyzer thar requites Modbus protochol, using 485 halfduplex For that to work i need to enable a disable the rs485 tranductor via gpio or timer555. i copy pasted this :


I copied the configuration above to se my raspberry as master.

-The would be any problems with the modbus timeout? (i set it like the example at 40us)

-is it a safer solution to set the enable using gpio/mcp23017(i2c)?

  • What is copy pasted? Assuming that means building the same schematic, there are several config options described in that post, which one did you use? – Dmitry Grigoryev Mar 17 '17 at 12:51
  • Hi thanks for answer, i used the mode where the timer control the enable of the rs485, i used that same r and c in the timer in order to achieve the same timeout . – Carlos Hxc Mar 20 '17 at 15:27
