Note: when connecting multiple meters one the same UART bus only keep one of the pull-up resistors (across all meters) on the TX pin (on the opto-coupler output), else the low level is not low enough for the micro-controller to correctly decode the signal.
+This 1-phase 2-wire electricity meter provides an RS-485 interface using the ModBus RTU protocol.
+For the 3-phase 4-wire power distribution installation I used 3 meters, one per phase.
+They can be connected to the same RS-485 bus once individual addresses have been set.
+The used meter IDs (aka. slave address) are hard coded in `main.c`
+A UART to RS-485 converter is used to be able to communicate with the meters.
+The SDM120 ModBus protocol document provide by Eastron specify the commands and registers, but the timing (important) is specified in the SDM630 ModBus protocol document.
