AI guy here who works predominantly in Python and who was recently assigned a software task. Please let me know if I can word this better. My terminology may be a little off but hopefully I can get the general idea across.
I am trying to learn how to test if a cable we built is able to use RS232/RS422 by connecting it to a couple of PXIs. I need to write a GUI which can test the cable to TX/RX through Port 1 on PXIs 1 and 2 and RX/TX on Port 2 on PXIs 1 and 2. The hardware is currently unavailable to test on but I need to write before it gets here.
I have found the RS232 example for CVI2017. I have read through the source code and have a general understanding of how it works. When I try to run it, I get a timeout error because I am not connected to a device.
What steps can I take to write the test software for RS232/RS422 in a device that I do not have?
