Re: RS422/485 from Labview

Use it the same way you would talk to a 232 port. It doesn't matter to LabVIEW
what type of serial port you're using. You can use the serial functions or
the VISA functions. For the serial functions, the port number is one less
than the com port number. For VISA, you pass the function ASRL1 for com 1,
ASRL5 for com 5, etc. The actual communication is handled by the driver and
unseen by the user.
