Open Serial

Open a serial connection to a remote LINX device.


Serial Port
Specifies the COM port of the remote LINX device.

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).

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


LINX Resource
Contains LINX connection resources.

Device Name
The name of the remote LINX device.

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