Currently I use the Qt 4. Modbus is just a serial protocol using RS485 (something similar to the RS232 port. This kind of converter acts like a serial port. Qt serial communication using UART Qt serial. Please take a look at some Qt examples to better. And (when user clicks a button) send it via the serial port.
Essential facts about RS232, RS485 and RS422 serial ports. The RS232 serial port was one of the first used to connect data terminals to mainframe computers. The problem is the serial port module.

Rs485 Serial Communication
Did anybody make QSerialPort(Info) work on /dev/spidev* kernel driver? I have running (visible, configured, operable via spidev_test.c) /dev/spidev0.0, however QSerialPortInfo::availablePorts returns list with just one member, for /dev/ttyAMA0.
Mac vim color. If it's one you downloaded from www.vim.org it is probably located in ~/.vim/colors, if it's one of the default color schemes it can be located in many places depending on wether you use the Apple-provided vim or another one you installed yourself.
I guess I can not (simply) use QSerialPort constructor with '/dev/spidev0.0' parameter before 'somehow' getting /dev/spidev0.0 accepted by QSerialPortInfo. What to do to make /dev/spidev0. Fruity loops free download for mac. 0 appear in the list? Any clues and advices heartily welcome. (I am able to workaround based on QFile of course, however I would love to do things Qt way;).).
Thanks for explanation. SPI has same basic characteristics like serial port (baud rate, parity.) and even (kind of) asynchronous in/out driven by kernel device so this is why I expected same object could manage them both. Now I intend to develop some object for accessing RS-485 UART on RaspComm board (which is itself driven via SPI).
Is there something in Qt (ready or WIP) about this (not to re-invent wheel) or is there some design skeleton/advice allowing eventually later extend QtSerialPort by this 'device'? (I am willing to contribute, should my development be evaluated as worth it.).
Getting back to document conclusions of my research on best practice of using RaspiComm RS-485 under Qt for anybody, who finds this thread useful (I expect many of it is valid for RS-232 on same board as well, did not test myself): • Do not try to implement communication with MAX3140 UART chip yourself (maybe except of asm based implementation, what is however most probably unnecessary exertion). I succeeded to implement it based on kernel /dev/spidev0.0 only to find out that even this partially system driver supported solution is too slow for even 19 200 Bd speed (loosing about 5 characters on one received). I myself feared about RaspiComm RS-485 driver /dev/ttyRPC0 based on some forums complaints and not clear versioning, however found out, that the forum thread was heavy outdated.
Qt Serial Port Example
Worked like a charm and the resulting driver worked out-of-box for my latest Raspbian Wheezy (4.1.7+ #817). So I strongly recommend to take this approach. • QSerialPort class has constructor with signature QSerialPort(const QString &, QObject *), where QString may contain even device which is not included in the QList that QSerialPortInfo::availablePorts() returns. This works with no surprise. If one does not set anything than (eventually) baud speed, one gets standard 8 bit, 1 stop bit, no parity without any character translations, good old plain raw binary. So QSerialPort may be used with /dev/ttyRPC0 directly and easily. QSerialPort rpc0('/dev/ttyRPC0'); rpc0.write('Binary request 0even xffcontaining weird x03characters', length_of_binary); if(rpc0.waitForReadyRead(100)) // Enough long time in miliseconds QByteArray data = rpc0.readAll(); // You may have to wait/read repetitively in loop // and merge data on higher link speeds • Hardware of RaspiComm uses RTS pin to select in/out direction of data.
