Serial monitor of a piece of equipment

Hi, I am working on a diagnostic tool, I can monitor a piece of equipment on my laptop using PuTTY I’d like to be able to see the same data within my XOD program, this is the beginnings of the tool.

If anyone can suggest a way I can get that achieved I would appreciate it very much.

Video below should show visually better than I can explain in words.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Charlie,

What is the interface between the Arduino and the RS232 port? If you don’t already have it in place, you’ll need hardware to convert the RS232 signal to a TTL signal the Arduino can understand (see: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/215).

Well, I did not know that. Thank you.
