Hello everyone, this is my first (and definitely not last) post on this forum.
I've developed a little Arduino project which communicates with LabVIEW through serial through USB. Now it turns out that our rig got moved and I'll need ~15m of cable to connect the Arduino to the computer, so I need to figure out how to get the serial connection through something else than a USB.
I've read that at the low baudrates I'm talking about (9600 bps or lower, if need be) RS-232 will be enough. Now I'm trying to figure out how to establish the connection. Is it as simple as:
Get a MAX3323, connect it to one of the hardware RX/TX terminals, plug it into the PC's COM port (fortunately, the ancient machine I'm working with has one), and then use regular Serial1.read() etc.? Or is it much more complicated than that and I'm missing something?
Thanks a lot!
