In the Xenta Servers, it is possible to set the communication port to RS232 or RS485.
In StruxureWare this is not possible on the AS.
The AS serial ports are RS-485, not RS-232.
There are two solutions to consider when Xenta is using an RS-232 connection:
- If the connected device also has a RS-485 connection switch to that. (Optionally replace the device with one that has RS-485.)
- Use a RS-232/RS-485 converter. The converter must have automatic data direction detection and control on the RS-485 side, since our Automation Server devices have no RTS signal (to enable the transmitter) available externally.
