FINCH-CC485 is a multipurpose IoT bridge board that allows edge nodes connected to the cloud platform. This board can be used to acquire data from energy meters, control panels, PLCs, SCADA systems or any other industrial equipment which is having a UART/COM port as communication port. It supports MODBUS communication. It can be interfaced and send data to remote users/servers through Ethernet or Wifi. The device also has the ability to control a load current upto 7A remotely. The PCB layout is shown above.
