Connecting Arduino due to Maxima 3485


I am actually working on Trinamic 6110. As my PC does not support RS485 I would like to communicate using Arduino due and using RS 232 as interface. Now i would like to know the procedure how it could be done as I have no idea if the sequence could work properly. If yes please let me know.

Thank you.

A search for "arduino rs485" turns up lots of hits for converting TTL serial to RS485. Like this one.

As per Trinamic 6110 datasheet, this device supports :

  • RS485 2-wire communication interface
  • USB 2.0 full speed (12Mbit/s) communication interface (mini-USB connector)
  • CAN 2.0B communication interface (9pin D-SUB)

All three are supported by the DUE.

For RS485, see chap. 35.7.6 page 801 of Sam3x datasheet.
