Issue Details

I have a barcode reader: DataMan 8050 but I am not sure how to connect it to my cRIO 9030.

Solution

This barcode reader communicates via the RS-232 serial port and NI cRIO 9030 has the same serial port. Therefore, you have to connect your reader to the RS-232 connector of your cRIO and use VISA resources to read the codes.

Note: Please make sure you install the serial drivers to your cRIO.
