SDC2130 + Raspberry Pi

6 years 8 months ago #29528911 by jdiddy1792
I am trying to control a SDC2130 using a raspberry pi, but I am not sure how to control it. I was hoping to control it with digital input, but it doesn't seem that is possible.

Therefore the next option seems to be connecting into the rs232, but how do I communicate from the raspberry pi to the motor controller?

YOu should use the serial port that is on the Raspverry header. Note however that the RPI serial port is TTL levels and so you should insert a TTL to RS232 adapter module (search on sparkfun). Alternatively, you can connect directly to the TTL serial port on the SDC.

Note also that by default, the RPI serial port is used by OS to display the boot log. I believe that it is released at the end of the boot sequence.

To test, you can run minicom after you have connected the SDC to the RPI, and enter a few conolse commands. For example, send ?FID and watch the SDC reply FID=Roboteq RCB100:SDC2160 .....
