RS-232 Support?

Is it possible to send (and receive) RS-232 pre-programmed messages? Do I need an IP to Serial bridge?

  • The brain has no RS232 output, so you would need an IP to serial bridge.

    In addition to what Bruce Hartley mentioned - you could use the Global Cache plugin to send serial commands to an IP2SL Global Cache/ITach/Simple Blaster.  I have one and tested with it - works fine...

  • Thanks guys, just to clarify:

    1. Am I right to assume I need to install a plugin in the NEEO to allow it to see/talk to the IP2SL bridge? Who provides/maintains the plugin (NEEO, Global Cache, other)?

    2. Can I create recipes to trigger RS232 (pre-determined) messages through the IP2SL?

    3. Is it Two-way? Can I create recipes to trigger when the NEEO receives RS232 (pre-determined) messages through the IP2SL?

    Thanks again.

      I wrote the plugin but have submitted it to the sdk-examples branch (so it's public if you want to change it).

      You can absolutely have a recipe trigger a message - however, I did not put in the reverse trip (ie receiving a message and doing something with it).  Wouldn't be difficult to do that however...

      Tim Roberts Thanks! I'm looking into updating some pretty complex systems, so at this point I'm just doing my homework before jumping in.
