Moxa connectivity


Recommended Posts

You need to install the Moxa drivers on your host PC (Windows only). Then, use the Moxa NPort Adminstrator application to configure your serial ports.

After that, your PC will treat the Moxa ports just like an on-board serial port or a USB-to-serial converter. This means your VI should read/write the Moxa serial ports using VISA, not TCP/IP.

No experience with the Moxa beyond reading the product page, which reminds me much of the Vlinx and Advantech serial servers I'm using. These  do have TCP and UDP modes, and are thus cross platform. You have to configure them first using either the windows configurator or their webby. Here is an example for TCP. Note the .vim which provide alternate code for either TCP or VISA.

VLINXqueryTCP.vi

VISA_TCP_query.vim

CloseConnection.vim
