Implementing MODBUS slave using just one Timer
Is it possible to implement MODBUS slave device using just one Timer?
By Sheshil Shaji V Thomas on 1 August, 2018 - 5:19 am

Hi, I am a beginner to MODBUS protocol and I've built a code for MODBUS slave device.

I have used 3 timers- one for checking t_3.5 character time for the requests received from the master, one for t_1.5 character time for received requests from the Master and the last for t_3.5 character time for the response from the slave.

I want to know if it is possible to implement MODBUS slave device using just "One" timer. This is because my whole project would be leaving only one timer for MODBUS.
