RS485/MODBUS Communication with JLD416PVA Power Meter

by

 

04 Apr 2012 (Updated )

Reads power, voltage and current data via RS485/MODBUS from a JLD416PVA meter.

append_crc(message)
function amsg = append_crc(message)
% Appends the crc (Low byte, high byte) to message for modbus
% communication. Message is an array of bytes. Developed for (but not
% limmited to) use with a Watlow 96 controller.

% W. R. Ashurst appended comments:  Usage - the argument 'message' contains
% decimal representation of hex values that comprise the message.  For
% Omega CN7800 at address '004', modbus mode 03 (read 1 register) starting
% address 1000 the message is '040310000001' in hex.  In decimal, it is '4,
% 3, 16, 0, 0, 1'.  The decimal form is passed to this function
% (append_crc) as an array of doubles which gives the result '4 3 16 0 0 1
% 128 159' Thus the MODBUS RTU message to send out via 'fwrite' would be
% [4, 3, 16, 0, 0, 1 128, 159]   I have verified this crc calculation with
% other Omega documentation.  Jan 13, 2012.


N = length(message);
crc = hex2dec('ffff');
polynomial = hex2dec('a001');

for i = 1:N
    crc = bitxor(crc,message(i));
    for j = 1:8
        if bitand(crc,1)
            crc = bitshift(crc,-1);
            crc = bitxor(crc,polynomial);
        else
            crc = bitshift(crc,-1);
        end
    end
end

lowByte = bitand(crc,hex2dec('ff'));
highByte = bitshift(bitand(crc,hex2dec('ff00')),-8);

amsg = message;
amsg(N+1) = lowByte;
amsg(N+2) = highByte;
