I am a newbie and I have been asked to figure out if it is possible to interface a set of three humidity/dewpoint sensors with an Arduino Uno board.
My understanding is that all of these sensors require some tweaking to be interfaced with Arduino, both in terms of coding and in terms of hardware connections.
For example, all their datasheets mention Modbus-RTU over RS485 communication protocols, and MiniDIN 43650 form C or M12 5 Pin (A coded) connectors.
I have been looking online and in this forum (topics such as this and this) but I could only find bits of information that, due to my extremely limited knowledge, I am not able to put together to figure out if they could work with Arduino Uno.
So, to recap, my main questions are:
- Is it possible at all to connect these sensors to an Arduino Uno board and with which kind of adapters (for example to the M12 connectors / RS485 communication, are there any)?
- Is it possible to write Arduino code that interfaces these sensors with the board, and are there available libraries that do so, or resources online that I might have missed? I could successfully connect sensors such as the HYT939 using a I2C protocol and the ad-hoc adapter and libraries (wire.h etc), but I was only able to do it thanks to various examples I found online. I doubt I would be able to write something from scratch with more complicated hardware.
Any help is really appreciated
