The ASCII CSV output mode is an alternative to AQT530 Modbus API. It is a simplified measurement monitoring output for users that are only collecting data, without the ability to control and monitor the AQT530 device otherwise.
The comma-separated values (CSV) output is sent automatically every 60 seconds. The output contains 1 measurement from all measurement outputs on one line and with a timestamp. The output data does not contain validity or device health information.
- Establish a connection to AQT530.
Set the RS-485 interface to ASCII CSV mode.
set rs485_mode=0 set rs485_baud=115200 set rs485_databits=8 set rs485_parity=n set rs485_stopbits=1 write --really
- Port settings: 8N1 (8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit)
Data sending starts automatically after selecting the mode.
- Close the local RS-232 maintenance connection.
- You can view the data through the RS-485 connection. For example, if the RS-485 port is connected to the serial port of your computer, the ASCII CSV data is available there.
