I am using a serial port to USB to connect the TH03 to my computer. Do I need to directly attach the serial port to make it usable without drivers?

How do I check the RTS and DTS?

You will need some serial port code from/for LabVIEW that allows you to send and receive data through a serial port. This will allow you to use a true COM port, or one on the USB interface. This code should also allow you to set the serial port handshake lines directly.

Once this is set up all you need to do is to send out the appropriate control bytes, as per the protocol in the manual, and read back the returned values.

The attached file is a simple executable serial terminal, you can use this to check if you can talk over the USB serial port to the TH03

Hi Martyn,

I have since tracked down the issue to be in the fact I was using a Rs232 to USB cable. Having switched to a different computer with an RS232 port the Th-03 now communicates fine with the computer.

Thank you for your help.

Callum
