I am trying to make a flow for reading data from an energy meter to a Grafana dashboard via Influxdb. I have a MBUS-USB converter, obviously connected to the USB port, transfering the signal from the HAN port. My problem is that I am getting in tons of signs that is unreadable, such as:
le a�e a� a� a�$�! 3a�<�! Ga� �! a� �# 4a� �# Ha� �#,B~~�
I also get the following sentece: AIDON_V0001 `�
This is the name of the energy meter which makes me belive that the hardware is working as it should.
If I change the Input to Binary Buffers (instead of Ascii-strings) in the Serial In-node I get values like this:
[ 11, 65, 73, 68, 79, 78, 95, 86, 48, 48 … ]
I don't belive this is Hexadecimals, it's something else..
I would like the message to look something like this:
So, is there perhaps someone who has any idea how to solve this problem...? Maybe some code in a function-node...?
