Initialize


Start a LINX session with programmatically configurable I/O settings. This mode is useful for overrideing the LINX Open VI's default behaviour.

Inputs


TCP Configuration
(Optional) Specifies the IP address and port of the remote LINX device. If both Serial Port and TCP Configuration are connected Serial Port will be used.

Serial Port
(Optional) Specifies the COM port of the remote LINX device. If both Serial Port and TCP Configuration are connected Serial Port will be used.

IO
(Optional) Used to override the default I/O (remote/local) used by the LINX VIs. By default local I/O is used when the LINX VIs are under a target in the LabVIEW Project and remote I/O is used when the VI is in the My Computer context in the LabVIEW project.

Interface
(Optional) Used to override the communication interfaced used to communicate with the LINX device.

Error In
Describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.

Baud Rate Override
(Optional) When specified, allows the user to override the dfault baud rate used for serial communication. By default LINX establishes communication using a baud rate of 9600 and then negotiates for the remote LINX device's maxiumum supported baud rate and re-establishes communication at that maximum rate. If a Baud Rate Override input is provided it will be maximum baud rate used. This is useful when using UART abstractions that are not able to change baud rates on the fly (Xbee for example).

Outputs


LINX Resource
Contains LINX connection resources.

Device Name
The name of the LINX device.

Error Out
Contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
