Hi bosski,

It should be possible to connect to it using LabVIEW.

 

Can you give more information? What type of modem do you use? What have you tried so far?

Hi Mike,

Its a gsm/gprs modem. it reads data using modbus protocol from modbus enabled devices (Like PLC, VFD, etc) And it send this data as Hexadecimal string via SMS, E-Mail and tcp/ip socket connection.  

 

i am going to place this modem in remote site, and receive the data from remote site via labview data socket.

After that i will insert the data into database.

 

i have no idea about data socket, but eager to learn.

Thanks&Regards,

Hi Bosski,

which type of server is running on your device? Is it a TCP/IP Server? If yes, then you can also use the TCPIP function. Connect to the server and read and write data from/to it.

Hi Mike,

I think its not a server. it opens the tcp/ip port connection of given ip address

Options in modem,

IP address:

Port: 

username:

password:

Hi Bosski,

where can you now see the information like IP Address, port, ...? I think there is a tcp/ip server running, and you can connect to it. See the tcpip examples in the example finder. You can use the Client example to see what you need. Which information do you want to get over your tcpip connection?
