This example assumes the computer is using COM1. For more flexibility, the code should allow the user to select the desired serial port from a list of available ports. For more information, see How to: Show Available Serial Ports.
The sample code linked to this page consists of a VB module containing a collection of routines to perform serial port I/O without using the Microsoft Comm Control component. The module uses the Windows API to perform the overlapped I/O operations necessary for serial communications.
The communication routines can handle up to 4 serial ports which are identified with a Port ID. All routines (with the exception of CommRead and CommWrite) return an error code or 0 if no error occurs. The routine CommGetError can be used to get the complete error message.
The routines in this module facilitate most operations associated with serial communication by encapsulating the API details in easy to call wrapper functions. For example, the CommOpen routine can be used to open and initialize a serial port.
This program lets you define the serial port, baud rate and comm format. It will then take your command string and send it to the PLC and obtain a response string from the PLC and display on the response box. It takes care of time-out (user- definable) and will not block the program if the PLC is not present. We have tested it on a H-series as well as M-series PLC and it works well. Please feel free to email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any feedback or suggestions.
You can easily include this form into your project and display it for user to set the communication parameters as well as perform some quick test of the communication with the PLC. The full source code is provided for your convenience if you wish to make any modifications. There are a 3 public functions defined in this sample file which you can call from your own application programs directly:
Hello friends, hope you all are enjoying the start of winter season. By the way, I really hate winter season and I just want to hibernate in this season . :) Well coming to our today's lecture, my today tutorial, serial port in VB 2010, is actually based on a request made by one of the member on my Facebook Page and as it is a really good topic so i thought to share it.
Today we will make a software on Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 in which we will send data through the serial port in VB 2010. In this software we will send the data and also receive it. Simply follow all the given steps carefully and you can easily interface the Serial Port in VB 2010, its a fully working project with code so don't do any mistake. Moreover check these two complete tutorials on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 as well, these are quite fascinating.
Visual Studio for Mac is a .NET integrated development environment on the Mac that can be used to edit, debug, and build code and then publish an app. In addition to a code editor and debugger, Visual Studio for Mac includes compilers, code completion tools, graphical designers, and source control features to ease the software development process.
Once connected to a computer, the card appears as a virtual serial (COM) port. The card also acts as a USB to RS-485 serial converter, allowing you to multidrop up to 4 interface cards off the RS-485 serial line. This allows control of up to 16 axes of motors.
Motors connected to the 290 are controlled using simple ASCII commands. Any terminal program (Hyperterm, TeraTerm, RealTerm etc.) or programming language capable of sending strings out a serial port can be used to generate the strings for the controller. We provide a free Windows example program with Visual Basic source code that allows a sequence of commands to be sent out the serial port.
The Web Serial API is asynchronous by design. This prevents the website UI from blocking when awaiting input, which is important because serial data can be received at any time, requiring a way to listen to it.
To open a serial port, first access a SerialPort object. For this, you can either prompt the user to select a single serial port by calling navigator.serial.requestPort() in response to a user gesture such as touch or mouse click, or pick one from navigator.serial.getPorts() which returns a list of serial ports the website has been granted access to.
Calling requestPort() prompts the user to select a device and returns a SerialPort object. Once you have a SerialPort object, calling port.open() with the desired baud rate will open the serial port. The baudRate dictionary member specifies how fast data is sent over a serial line. It is expressed in units of bits-per-second (bps). Check your device's documentation for the correct value as all the data you send and receive will be gibberish if this is specified incorrectly. For some USB and Bluetooth devices that emulate a serial port this value may be safely set to any value as it is ignored by the emulation.
After the serial port connection is established, the readable and writable properties from the SerialPort object return a ReadableStream and a WritableStream. Those will be used to receive data from and send data to the serial device. Both use Uint8Array instances for data transfer.
When new data arrives from the serial device, port.readable.getReader().read() returns two properties asynchronously: the value and a done boolean. If done is true, the serial port has been closed or there is no more data coming in. Calling port.readable.getReader() creates a reader and locks readable to it. While readable is locked, the serial port can't be closed.
Some non-fatal serial port read errors can happen under some conditions such as buffer overflow, framing errors, or parity errors. Those are thrown as exceptions and can be caught by adding another loop on top of the previous one that checks port.readable. This works because as long as the errors are non-fatal, a new ReadableStream is created automatically. If a fatal error occurs, such as the serial device being removed, then port.readable becomes null.
If the serial device sends text back, you can pipe port.readable through a TextDecoderStream as shown below. A TextDecoderStream is a transform stream that grabs all Uint8Array chunks and converts them to strings.
However, when continuously reading data from a serial device using a loop, port.readable will always be locked until it encounters an error. In this case, calling reader.cancel() will force reader.read() to resolve immediately with value: undefined, done: true and therefore allowing the loop to call reader.releaseLock().
Closing a serial port is more complicated when using transform streams (like TextDecoderStream and TextEncoderStream). Call reader.cancel() as before. Then call writer.close() and port.close(). This propagates errors through the transform streams to the underlying serial port. Because error propagation doesn't happen immediately, you need to use the readableStreamClosed and writableStreamClosed promises created earlier to detect when port.readable and port.writable have been unlocked. Cancelling the reader causes the stream to be aborted; this is why you must catch and ignore the resulting error.
If a serial port is provided by a USB device then that device may be connected or disconnected from the system. When the website has been granted permission to access a serial port, it should monitor the connect and disconnect events.
After establishing the serial port connection, you can explicitly query and set signals exposed by the serial port for device detection and flow control. These signals are defined as boolean values. For example, some devices such as Arduino will enter a programming mode if the Data Terminal Ready (DTR) signal is toggled.
To deal with this, you can use some built-in transform streams such as TextDecoderStream or create your own transform stream which allows you to parse the incoming stream and return parsed data. The transform stream sits between the serial device and the read loop that is consuming the stream. It can apply an arbitrary transform before the data is consumed. Think of it like an assembly line: as a widget comes down the line, each step in the line modifies the widget, so that by the time it gets to its final destination, it's a fully functioning widget.
To use the transform stream class, you need to pipe an incoming stream through it. In the third code example under Read from a serial port, the original input stream was only piped through a TextDecoderStream, so we need to call pipeThrough() to pipe it through our new LineBreakTransformer.
For debugging serial device communication issues, use the tee() method of port.readable to split the streams going to or from the serial device. The two streams created can be consumed independently and this allows you to print one to the console for inspection.
The website can clean up permissions to access a serial port it is no longer interested in retaining by calling forget() on the SerialPort instance. For example, for an educational web application used on a shared computer with many devices, a large number of accumulated user-generated permissions creates a poor user experience.
On Android, support for USB-based serial ports is possible using the WebUSB API and the Serial API polyfill. This polyfill is limited to hardware and platforms where the device is accessible via the WebUSB API because it has not been claimed by a built-in device driver. 153554b96e
