Want Vijeo Designer v6.0 to send ASCII string command to printer


Thread Starter


Hi folks,

I am using Vijeo Designer V6.0 to send ASCII string commands to printer. The printer is an inkjet printer that prints on boxes.
I have to send a string command like this

the printer can accept ASCII commands through Serial RS 232 or ethernet TCP/IP.

I can communicate with the printer using a vb code that i wrote to send and receive commands and acknowledgement.

But the HMI can only send ASCII bytes through serial and modbus tCP/ip. how do i get these 2 to communicate?
Any help would be appreciated
