Hi Miguel,

You may want to ask this on comp.lang.python instead.  The Modbus/JBUS
protocol might be a bit advanced and specialized for the group here; I
don't think we can help you that effectively.

The only thing that I can mention here is the pyserial project, which
provides access to the serial port:


I'd have to assume that some software would have to be written to talk the
JBUS protocol across the serial port, but I'm hitting the limits of my
ability to use Google effectively in this area... *grin* So I'd strongly
recommend asking this to a wider audience.

Good luck to you.
