Hello people

I'm a novice and I'm trying to read data from an epever charge controller using MODBUS according to the following details:

Arduino: Mega

Used library: ModbusMaster
Circuit: rs-485 module connected as follows

1- MAX485_DE → Pin 2 of Arduino
2- MAX485_RE_NEG → Pin 2 of the Arduino
3- MAX485_RO → 19 Arduino RX Pin
4- MAX485_DI → 18 TX Pin of Arduino

Teste.ino (1.2 KB)

The link below has the address of each epever charge controller data

I tested the code to get variables like voltage and current and it works normally. My question is how can I get the Battery status, Array status, Charging status, Load status and Array Power(W) data correctly?

@feikzinho, your topic has been moved to a more suitable location on the forum. Introductory Tutorials is for tutorials that e.g. you write, not for questions. Feel free to write a tutorial once you have solved your problem :wink:

In future, please post your code in a post instead of as an attachment. Not everybody can open ino files on e.g. a cell phone so your missing out on knowledgeable people.

OP's code

#include <ModbusMaster.h>
#include <SPI.h>
#include <SD.h>

#define MAX485_DE      2
#define MAX485_RE_NEG  2

ModbusMaster node;

File myFile;

void preTransmission()
  digitalWrite(MAX485_RE_NEG, 1);
  digitalWrite(MAX485_DE, 1);

void postTransmission()
  digitalWrite(MAX485_RE_NEG, 0);
  digitalWrite(MAX485_DE, 0);

void setup()
  pinMode(MAX485_RE_NEG, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(MAX485_DE, OUTPUT);
  // Init no modo de recepção
  digitalWrite(MAX485_RE_NEG, 0);
  digitalWrite(MAX485_DE, 0);


  node.begin(1, Serial1);


  if (!SD.begin(53)) {
    while (1);

bool state = true;

void loop()
  uint8_t result;
  uint16_t data[6];
  result = node.writeSingleCoil(0x0002, state);
  state = !state;

  result = node.readInputRegisters(0x3100,20);
  myFile ="alex.txt", FILE_WRITE);

  if (result == node.ku8MBSuccess)
    Serial.print("Array Current(A): ");

Thank you for the informations

A little wiring, drawn by pen and paper is preferred. Word built wirings often hide away the reason for error. It's what's not told that often matters.
