Sending ASCII over serial
I am using send raw serial to send ascii to a camera controller. works from data viewer on a PC but Isadora seems to convert it to hex...Sending the Words "Power Off" (which works from a pc terminal, it switches the machine off) gives me this output in the monitor:
<- Serial | 1 | 50 6F 77 65 72 20 4F 66 66 | Powe r Of f |
So either its sending hex or its scrambled, both are wrong. So How can I send a clean Power Off ?
I am getting some feed back over serial, so I know she hears me.
Hi Fubbi,Have you tried with the classic send serial data ? The actor help explains how to send ascii I think.For the send raw serial, I guess you have checked the "mode" parameter. Are we sure this parameter is working properly?Hoping you're going good !Mehdi
Well, I am working with TCP instead now, the setup changed here. Still having the same problem. I am seeing that the machine hears me, and I get some kind of garbled feedback. So I am pretty sure I am opening and closing my connection right, on the right IP and port.In the attached document there is a lot of chinese algebra about how to format the commands, but I can't seem to get the ascii going.
The command to shut down, on page 21 is what I am looking for:
Shutdown the device (with Wake on LAN feature enabled): This command shuts down the device and enables the Wake on LAN feature by writing the value 2 (see next chapter for more information).
is the device index (0 for Master device, 1 for Slave device).
so dev in my case is 0 and LF is a line feed which is 0D in hex ( \n in isadora?)
so how to format this for the send TCP actor?
this does not work: "0,2PCsht" 0D
and gives me this feedback
<- TCP/IP | 192.168.1.70:10600 | 30 2C 32 50 43 73 68 74 20 0A | 0,2P Csht . |
-> TCP/IP | 192.168.1.70 | 54 50 63 6F 6E 30 2C 31 0D 0A | TPco n0,1 .. |
so you see how the command is fragmented in the monitor (0,2P Csht), same as with the serial. I am doing something fundamentally wrong I guess...
@mark what am I missing here? Thanks F
solved it! I was missing a carriage return! wohoo!
Can you post the working filter? It might help others to see the correct format.
