Recommend an M-bus to Rs-232/USB transparent adapter/converter


#1

Recently I have been trying to interface with PadPuls 2 by Relay.de through modbus and then via mbus to modbus converter. However it requires some configuration using their own software MBCONF.

In order to do this I need a ‘transparent’ M-bus to Rs-232/USB adapter/converter. Did anyone ever used such a device?

I looked into the following products;
