Communication RS 232
« on: April 22, 2013, 03:19:17 AM »
I would like to communicate via the RS 232 between FMD88-10 and a masflow that communicates RS-232.
I try to send a string of such "070304716271620E" then Carriage Return and Line Feed.
I configured the same way the two products are: 1 start bit, 8 data bits, no parity and 1 stop bit.

My program:

in FirstScan
SETBAUD 1, & H06


PRINT # 1 "070304716271620E" &H0D; &H0A;
FOR I = 1 to 10000
A $ = INPUT $ (1)

By sending the same through the hyperterminal with my PC running Windows XP it worked! Can you help me this is quite urgent.
thank you

If your goal is to send a message terminated by a carriage return and a linefeed you might want to change the print statement from:

    PRINT # 1 "070304716271620E" &H0D; &H0A;


     PRINT #1 "070304716271620E\0D\0A";

Your program, as presented, can not be compiled.  It is missing a ";" .  If your program was corrected so that it would compile:

   PRINT #1 "070304716271620E"; &H0D; &H0A;

The output would be:

    "070304716271620E 13 10"

There would be no carriage return and no line feed.
