This device is a USB to RS232 adapter, that does not require a driver and does not install a virtual COM port.
It can autonomously interpret serial data coming from any RS232 appliance and expose measures as if they were coming from a Yoctopuce sensor, with all the inherent advantages: unique identifier, polling, callbacks, data logger. Be aware that this device does not work with applications designed to use a COM port: it is designed to be used with the Yoctopuce API only.
The device is electrically insulated, which means that it can be connected without risk to an appliance powered on a different circuit. The Yocto-RS232 conforms to the TIA/EIA-232-F standard (-5.5V and 5.5V output, and up to -25V... +25V as input). It is therefore compatible with all standard RS232 interfaces, but it cannot be wired directly to chips using logical CMOS/TTL levels.
The RJ12 to DB9 adapter for bidirectional communication (including CTS/RTS) is included.
The device can also analyze an RS232 bidirectional communication between two tiers without interference (using two input channels), but the adapter for this usage is not included.
If you need to interface a serial port working with CMOS/TTL levels, choose a Yocto-Serial.
This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub-Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub-Wireless-n and to a GSM network using a YoctoHub-GSM.
USB cables and enclosures to be ordered separately.
I would please need a little help here.
We have a old but reliable gas-measuringdevice which puts out a data string like this:
00 00 00 66 00 00 00 66 C8
19 01 00 67 00 00 00 81 C8
2E 01 00 66 00 00 00 95 C8
The first byte is the base of the measured Value and the second byte is the exponent of the measured Value. Ist it possible to store the Value in one genericSensor (Base and exponent calculated)?
thanks for the help.
@till We can certainly find a solution. Please reach out to support by mail, and let us know if this output is in ASCII form or in binary form. If you have the datasheet of the sensor, that would also help.
