RS232 Shield V1.0

Introduction

  • This RS232 shield is designed for the Arduino controller,and it can easily convert UART to RS232 interface.
  • This shield integrates DB9 connectors (female), so it can be easily connected to various RS232 interface devices.Also the shield integrates RS232 headers to facilitate your connection and commissioning.
  • The shield provides the welding areas to maka full use of space on it. And it's convenient for your DIY design.
  • The shield provides a run / program mode switch. To OFF at the time, to Arduino master programmer;To ON at the time, the shield normal use.
  • Gold immersion PCB. Long pins on the back adapt to most Arduino controllers.

Specification

  • Power module: +5V
  • Module size: 55mmx53mm
  • 16 digital IO port (including a I2C interface)
  • 6 analog IO port and power
  • Operation/programming mode switch
  • Transceiver indicating LED
  • DB9 connectors (female), RS232 pins
  • Weldable area
  • Reset button

Applications

  • RS232 communication

PinOut

RS232 Shield (SKU:DFR0259)

DB9母头接口定义
pin 2 TXD
pin 3 RXD
pin 5 GND


Operation/programming mode switch
OFF download the program for the Arduino controller
ON convert the UART to the RS232

Tutorial

Connection Diagram

When you install the RS232 shield on your Arduino board, and connect the USB-RS232 converter(DB9 male) with the RS232 shield(DB9 female).Then download the following sample code (Note: Downloading code,operation/programming mode switch must hit the OFF position, otherwise it will lead to the download fails. When downloaded,it is complete to ON, and the shield to normal use).

int led = 13;
void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(led,OUTPUT);
}
void loop()
{
  int temp;
  if(Serial.available())
  {
    temp=Serial.read();
     if(temp=='V'){
      digitalWrite(led,1-digitalRead(led));
    Serial.println("OK");
     }
  }
}

Result

Open serial monitor of Arduino IDE, find USB-RS232 converter corresponding serial port, send character "V", you can see the LED status may change, and reply "OK".
