Driving motor by RS485

Hi everyone. I want to control motor using RS485 from VVVV. Can I do this with RS282 node? Or should I use something else?

hi imran_d,
you can use the RS232 node with all serial interfaces if they appear as a COM port in the windows device manager. if your serial hardware-interface (be it RS232 or RS485) appears there, look up the COM port number (e.g. COM3) in the device manager and set the RS232 node to this com port.
then, of course, you just need to know the right commands to control your motor.

I believe rs485 uses a timing sensitive protocol, you will need to interface from rs232 to rs485 via a driver chip. I would suggest using an arduino or similar and a max485 board
