Hi,

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.

Thanks!

You can use this http://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-5V-MAX485-Module-TTL-To-RS485-Converter-Low-Power-Consumption-For-Arduino-/121155729121?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c3571b6e1 it is cheap and working well i already use it  ;)
