Probably a noob question, but I want to create a RS485 network to connect distance sensors and it seems a cheaper option would be to have a Arduino Nano with a RS485 transceiver connected to it to send the date to a central Arduino UNO or Rapsberry Pi.
Can I connect the 5V RS485 Transceiver Board from WaveShare (http://www.wvshare.com/product/RS485-Board-5V.htm
) to the Arduino Nano? The sensors would be connected to the nano.
I can't come with a simpler way to collect distant sensor data.
