Linx 68000 Continious Inkjet printer

I need to send ASCII strings to one of these devices. Has anyone ever done that with this kind of printer?
We have numerous Linx 4800 and 4900 printers that we send ASCII to via serial to DeviceNet interfaces. Tait Control Systems [email protected] developed the protocols for Linx, Imaje and Videojet coders via DeviceNet and work quite well.

You can purchase an RS232 manual from Linx. I am familiar with the 4800 model, and the 6200 model.

1) you will need to make sure that you select a remote or rs232 message field.
2) You will need to go into the setup menu (system configuration), and take note of preamble, field size, postamble, start/stop characters, and any other info.

Have you tried calling your equipment seller for some support??? They should offer some phone support at no charge.
