Hi team, hoping I can get some help pretty urgently.
Have tried connecting a Ping 1D sonar over the RS485 to serial adapter to two different computers, both running Windows 10. In both cases, the PingViewer application is unable to detect the devices automatically. I can tell what serial port the Ping is connected to, because it disappears when I disconnect the USB port. Manual connection does not work either.
As a second option, I’ve tried connecting using an Arduino Uno with the supplied library, and running the ping1d-simple example sketch. I get the following output over the serial terminal, which doesn’t really make sense to me:
Any help would be hugely appreciated, because I’m running out of ideas.
