connecting multiple devices


just checking now the examples, seem interesting and promising.
My question is how should I connect multiple devices on distance, i mean as a hobby project to connect some valve and sensor on garden, but all kind of point should be at 30-50 meters from each others.
I mean like on industrial enviroment we use simens cpu connected over profibus to et200 distributed io's.
Of course no safety issues, just hobby project.... Because I would trace some power cable underfloor, but for command part maybe would be some raspberry as master, and some other as slave, connected trough some wifi ....i do not see any other serial protocol wich could be used,
thanks and all the best,pama

Re: connecting multiple devices

Hi pama,
yes you can have one RPi as master and one or more RPi as slave(s). For data exchange you can use:
1) Modbus TCP, see … a_Exchange
2) UDP communication, see … r_Receiver
3) RDC function block (not available in demo version), see … DC_example

All options will work via Ethernet or wifi.

I recommend Modbus TCP because it takes care of data integrity, reconnection in case of temporary network failure, etc.

Hope this answers your question. If you need additional information, I'll be happy to help.
