I have a project including rs232 and ethernet communication. I will control linear actuator by using VNH5019 motor control shield and Arduino Mega. From remote PC, a command will send by using ethernet. Ethernet will be converted to RS232 by using MOXA serial to ethernet Converter. RS232 is converted to TTL by using waveshare converter. By using command from ethernet, the linear actuator will move. Actually, the command that will send will be determined other engineer. I dont know yet what will be using. How should I start to build the system. How can I control motor by interpreting command from ethernet ? Could you give some idea ? I am newbie about communication protocols, I have begun to work by the way.
