RS422 Communication In VeriStand

I would like to use a PXI-8431/8 module to communicate with some devices over RS-422 trough VeriStand. I know that Instrumunt Add-On Custom Device allows sending messages over RS-422, but when using this add-on comminication structure should be command response. This add-on doesn't initiate any communication.

 

How can I communicate over RS422 through Veristand? If a custom device is necessary, is there anyone who has used the PXI-843x or similar PXI module before can help me?

Hi bkarkar,

 

Instrument Addon allows you to send only commands.

From Instrument Addon Quick Start Guide.md:

Yes, as I said I know that. I don't just want to send commands, I want to receive messages from the UUT without sending commands. That's what I meant when I said communication.

You can delete the command section and keep the response section to let the Instrument Addon poll on the VISA Read.
