I've been playing with automation some time now and Mango has proven to be quite easy to use and reliable; a friend of mine gave me a power meter that has RS485 supports Modbus(RS485) protocol and I've been struggling to get it connected to my existing Mango installation, which has been upgraded to 1.12 recently.
I searched this forum and learned that several folks has successfully connected their PLCs and other devices using Modbus IP/Serial.
Not me. I've gone nowhere for the past 2 weeks :cry:
Here is my configuration;
I have a 2 meter-long RS485 to RS232 connector wired following the cabling instruction in the manual that connects the Meter to my PC with Mango installed (Windows).
I created Modbus Serial data source and try the scan. No nodes are found.
I placed the rxtx.dll and rxtx.jar in the directory as instructed.
Can some one put me on the right direction by sharing, showing me his "Modbus device - cabling - Mango" configurations, please?
