The Y511-A has a wiper motor that draws a little too much power on initial startup, so unfortunately even the newest Mayfly 1.1RevB still can’t power it directly.  Our early 1.0 prototypes handled all the various 12v sensors just fine, but the voltage regulators on that prototype have been out of stock for the past 18 months, and we’ve been unable to find similar components that are suitable for all the various 12v sensors people typically operate from a Mayfly board.  I’m still testing parts and designs so once we’ve found one that works and is readily available from the manufacturer and have fully tested it to guarantee that it works with all of our typical sensors, then we’ll be able to produce the RS-485 modbus adapter board.  I don’t have any definite dates of when that might happen, but I’ll certainly let everyone know once we’ve got a estimated availability date.
