I am embarking on the design of an embedded system which is supposed to extract generator parameters from the generator's control panel and sends the data via a gprs network to a remote server. The control panel speaks modbus protocol and so I think I would need a microcontroller that supports the same protocol (Modbus). Kindly help suggest a suitable microcontroller for this project. I would also appreciate suggestion on alternative ways to implement this project.
I am sorry if I had jumped any protocol; I am new on this platform.
