Industrial sensor - to - Arduino

(Version francaise, ci-dessous)

Dear Arduino specialists,

I'm starting the conception of a higly-filled filament puller for 3D printing.
The project is to get the bi-directional diameter measurements from an industrial laser gauges head and with it to control the stepper motor pulling the filament at the end of the extruder (and few other motors).
The company selling the laser head offers following communication choices:

  • RS 232, 422, 485
  • DP Profibus
  • EI EtherNet/IP
  • EN Ethernert TCP/IP
  • PN Profinet IO V2.3

Wich one is easier to get along? And which hardware interface has to be used?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Best regards,

Cher spécialistes Arduino,

Je travaille sur la conception d'un enrouleur-tireur de filament pour l'impression 3D.
Le projet est : Ă  partir d'une tĂȘte de mesure laser bidirectionnelle industrielle, de contrĂŽler le moteur pas Ă  pas qui tire le filament (et Ă©ventuellement d'autres moteurs par la suite).
L'entreprise qui vend la tĂȘte de mesure laser propose les protocoles de communication suivants :

  • RS 232, 422, 485
  • DP Profibus
  • EI EtherNet/IP
  • EN Ethernert TCP/IP
  • PN Profinet IO V2.3

Le quel est le plus simple à utiliser ? Et quelle interface hardware est nécessaire?
Merci d'avance pour votre aide et bien chaleureusement,

RS232 (etc), every time.

Thank you.
So I gess the rs 485 shield will be necessary?

Hi @thomashm,

I don't know much about this type of communication, but this might help you:

I would assume a rs-232 shield would be better than a rs-485 shield:

Hope this helps.
