Honestly my understanding of all this is pretty basic, but I understand that the firmware is very important. I left it up to Northern Widget to upload the appropriate firmware to the sensor before they sent the sensors, so that that process would be streamlined. I did read through their documentation on the firmware and, as you stated before, they have two; I2C and RS485. I am pretty sure the one that is uploaded is the I2C. I am curious to see if the RS485 would work or if there would need to be some revision of the firmware somehow. They didn’t talk about trying different firmware.

Yes maybe someone else has tried this also and can comment.

Thanks Sara,
