I'm trying to get a Unitronics V570 to communicate to a Red Lion Data Station Plus over RS232. The documentation seems to only talk about RS485 and Ethernet, but Red lion Crimson lets me set up the driver on the RS232 port. Unfortunately, I need the RS485 on the Red Lion for something else...
RED LION RS232 V570 Port 2
RX (2) - (3) TXD
TX (5) - (4) RXD
GND(3) - (5) GND
On the Red Lion, I set it up for PCOM ASCII protocol 9600,8,N,1
On the Unitronics, I do a COM INIT on Power Up for COM2.
They just don't talk. I see the transmit light blink on the Red Lion, but nothing on the receive.
Anybody else tried this successfully?
Thanks for your time,
