Serial RS-232 Communication with Minitaur

Hi There,

We were trying to capture some information with our Minitaur from one of our train sub system, but the connection interface for this system only exists as a RS232 protocol.

Can the GPS Dsub9 port be used as a normal serial port to capture this data ?

We tried using a serial to USB conversion adapter to connect to the Minitaur, but under the Serial Com Tab it says "no serial devices defined in Hardware setup" and I don't have any serial devices shown under the hardware tab.

Any help would be appreciated.

Do you guys sell an hardware add on module which can interface using Serial RS232 (Dsub 9). I have already downloaded and enabled the software plug in, but not sure how the connect the hardware to the Dewe system.

Actually, I was able to figure it out myself. I was able to connect the hardware using a serial to USB converter and loading the correct driver files into the Minitaur.

The rest of it, I figured out using the Dewe Serial plug in manual, which is pretty detailed.
