I have been frustratingly over the last couple of weeks trying to get some feedback from Digi using the support contact method. It has led me back to the beginning again, drawing blanks.
I'm trying to ascertain what Xbee product can transmit Modbus RS485 over long ranges.
My focus is on the small modules, "Bare bones" no enclosure as it needs to integrate into an existing small plastic enclosure.
Ideally it is a plug and play module, some configuration on the XCTU software is OK, i have no coding abilities so this would have to be a no go.
I have had conflicting, advise from 2 Digi technical support techs, leaving my confidence short.
I was interested in the Xbee 900hp-pro, i was told this would need an MCU to interface the Modbus protocol and be able to transmit. I have read on some other posts about the Xtend device.
This is the most promising lead yet.
Please could some one help me and explain to me how i can achieve the above request.
I would be so happy if you could help.
