Re: Interfacing U2000 Hitachi spectrophotometer to pc via RS232C

Hi again

I think there is no need to make a driver... If you are catching raw serial data, it is possible to work with it due to the versatility of the string operations offered by LabVIEW.

Everything should work fine if the communication is set to be serial and its parameters have being configured correctly. Sent bits from your device will arrive to the serial port buffer and will be available for reading in binary, hex or ASCII format (ASCII is the default when using Serial inside LabVIEW).

There is a link you can check in order to evaluate if you need a driver http://www.ni.com/devzone/idnet/why_create_lv.htm and another that offers some examples http://www.ni.com/white-paper/3271/en

Hope this works for you, let me know how it goes...
