For those of you who have been waiting for an update for the NXT-G RS485 block, today is your day! I have posted a new download for a beta of the upcoming block (currently version 2.28) on the Files page of my blog. The big advantage is the implementation of a timeout for sending and receiving data. Basically the block will try to receive data 10 times (total of 10 ms) before moving on. It will also have a max timeout of 100 ms. I suspect the block will change a bit over the next 24 hours as comments come in, so watch for updates and a new version change. (I have several known bugs already.) I wanted to get this out there so people can play with it and let me know! Give it a try and leave your comments below.
