GSIOC serial interface



Functions for communicating with Gilson GSIOC protocol devices over RS-232

| Watch this File

File Information

Communicate with Gilson Devices over GSIOC protocol with RS-232.

Script for demonstrating the use of gsioc.m, a serial interface function for communicating with Gilson equipment using the GSIOC protocol. This code was developed while working with a Gilson 215 liquid handler but should be functional with any of the other GSIOC protocol devices.
Many thanks to Geoffrey Akien and his CO2gui - lab control and automation, for having figured out many of the intricacies of talking with a GSIOC device. This code is in many ways a simplified adaptation of his work with less error handling, but a little more flexibility.
starthere.m - example implementation of the files
gsiocserialstart.m - initiate serial interface
gsioc.m - primary function for send/receive
gsiocsendcheck.m - sub function of gsioc.m for serial communication
Example: Un-comment any of the "stype" and "command" pairs to
use the interface. Be sure to specify the correct com port and device ID

I'm glad someone found it useful, it was a PITA to figure out!
