Receiver interface for use with EnOcean based wireless sensors, actuators and switches. The gateway
receives wireless telegrams from EnOcean wireless products. The device acts as a Modbus slave and
communicates with the Modbus master controller via an RS-485 interface. Compatible with all EnOcean
Wireless sensors of ORG types 5, 6 or 7.
I'll be posting some how to articles shortly. The main thing is that you need to manually insall the drivers for the Z-Stick. The Z-wave module is not included in the main download but you can get it and manually install it in Mango here: http://store.infiniteautomation.com/module/zwave
I have a small personal project in mind where I'd like to use a raspberry pi, ODROID or similar embedded ARM board running Mango, and use the PID controller module to drive a solid-state relay (with a temperature probe proving the PV parameter).
However, I have run into a problem trying to find a way to interface Mango to the 'outside world' in a way that is compact and low cost. I am prepared (in fact, would prefer) to build something from scratch, as this is a learning project. I have intermediate electronics experience.
I thought about using an Arduino running a 1-wire or Modbus library, and communicating with it over serial, via I suppose a USB serial adapter, but wondered if there was another way of interfacing Mango with the hardware at a lower level to achieve control of the SSR and read a temperature probe via Mango.
My company (greenHouse Gas and Electric) supports j2mod which also has support for Modbus/UDP (Modbus/TCP packets over UDP), but I don't personally use Modbus/UDP. I mention j2mod because j2mod is being used as the "base" for posting open source Arduino sketches that support Modbus/RTU and eventually Modbus/TCP and/or Modbus/UDP.
I'd like to do more with 1-wire, just haven't had the time.
I'm toying with creating new protocols, but there are intellectual property issues to resolve.
I have installed mango db in my windows system successfully.
I want to implement an application such as centralized locks and measuring pressure.
Please guide me how i should implement this app and what sensors or h/w devices are required to
complete this task.
As i m new to this field i request experienced members to guide me.
Thanks for posting your findings. Very interesting. Have you gotten a chance to experiment with Mango Automation yet? (newer version that has DGLux and modular architecture) You can have a map overlaid with your zigbee nodes and do some really cool stuff - hover over to bring up a drill down window, etc.
I'm interested in talking with you more about this project. I will message you.
Joel, Bob - thanks for the deatils. the hw you have pointed to looks impressive, but is way too expensive for what i have in mind.
Let me elaborate, i am looking for something very simple like a 2 relay device which can be controlled over wireless directly by mango. someting < $30. Looking at the links you have posted and also my own googling, this seems highly unlikely.
this triggers an idea which i want to bounce off you. Using Arduino and the Rf modules which come for it, do you think it is a practical possibility to implement the MODBUS serial protocol over wireless using nRF24L01 modules and arduino MCU? I wanted your opinion on the praticality before i start investing some time in taking this forward.
Ok reading data from arduino is easy but what if you want to set an output on arduino?
Did you have some exemple ?
From what I have read the arduino modbuslave library does not have a COIL register implemented :(
Did you have some solution?
