    I use RS232 to RS485 converter with MAX232 and SN75176 chips. I want to use RTS signal for data enable on SN75176 chip.
    How do I set the RTS signal to be active only when sending data, for serial communication – modbus RTU over RS485?
    When I select the RTS option in “Serial Port Properties” – RTS pin on serial port is always active.
    thanks for help

    This feature requires changes in the source code of the serial communication channel. In Rapid SCADA 6, which is not ready yet, it will be possible to develop a custom communication channel with the needed logic. However, may be it’s easier to change the converter.

    Will you develop a custom communication channel by yourself or prefer ordering the development?
