Multidrop RS485 and BL2600

Hi Everybody,

I am trying to connect 5 BL2600s together. Is the RS485 port on BL2600 is multidrop? Can RS485 be used to connect 5 BL2600s together to communicate to each other?

Thank You

RS485 is a multidrop capable specification, so it should not have any problem in communicating between 5 controllers. You should be aware that you need a protocol to avoid collisions, the simplest way is to have only one master that coordinates the communications.
