Receiving/Feedback of RS232 using Global Cache

Qorin 2 years ago in Products / Other drivers • updated by Jackie Roos 1 year ago 8


I would like to receive data by using the GlobalCache Wifi to Serial.

I used H-Term to periodically send data to globalcache along with USB to RS232 as my test setup (I am able to receive data from Iridium in H-Term)

Below is the code that I have implemented in java script.

var timer = 0;
var onTime = 50; // in ms
var pageNumber = 1;
var funcOp = 0xFF;

this.DriverName = "Global Cache";
this.Online = false;
this.device = IR.GetDevice(this.DriverName);

var init = 0;
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_RECEIVE_TEXT, this.device, function(text,id){
IR.Log("receive 1 = "+ text);
IR.GetPage("Gowing").GetItem("txtT").Text = "AAAAA";
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_WORK, 0, function(time){
var that = this;
var packXPC;
timer += time;
if(init == 0){
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_DEVICE_FOUND, that.device, function(name){
IR.Log("Name :"+name);
}, that);
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_ONLINE, that.device, function(text){
IR.Log(that.DriverName+" DEVICE is Online");
that.Online = true;
init = 1;
}, that);
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_OFFLINE, that.device, function(text){
IR.Log(that.DriverName+" DEVICE is Offline");
that.Online = false;
}, that);
if(timer > onTime){
timer = 0;
case 1:
packXPC = [pageNumber, funcOp];
packXPC = [0xFF, 0xFF];
/*IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_RECEIVE_TEXT, that.device, function(text, id){
IR.Log("receive = "+ text); // Output the received data in the log
}, that);
/*IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_RECEIVE_DATA, that.device, function(text, id){
IR.Log("receive 1 = "+ text);


So far, I did not receive anything in the log nor in the text box in the GUI when I test it.

Has anyone ever encountered this problem or has solved it?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you!



Hi :)

4998 is the IR port. 4999 and above are the serial ports.

In the GUI editor did you set up a new AV & Custom Systems Driver TCP/IP driver?

We use this routinely to send and receive commands to serial devices via a Global Cache IP2SL. For serial devices via GC, I don't use the the GC driver at all, as it is not necessary and the AV & Custom Systems driver gives more flexibility.

Have you setup the GC IP2SL to have multiple connections in iHelp?

IR.EVENT_RECEIVE_TEXT receiving hex > 0x80

Mike Slattery 2 years ago in Products / AV & Custom Systems • updated by Dmitry - support (expert) 2 years ago 2

Is there a reason why numbers that are > 0x80 are received as 0 when using IR.EVENT_RECEIVE_TEXT? Is there a driver configuration that allows all hex data to be received.I need to setup a telnet session and have to parse through data like "\xFF \xFD\x18". If I use EVENT_RECEIVE_DATA, then I have problems parsing ASCII data.


Hi Mkie

Probably as you are getting into the extended ascii characters (http://ascii-code.com/), and it depends on what is on your machine if they are the latin ones or not

I suggest using receive_data, and convert from the decimal to hex using something like this:

      IR.Log("Receive Raw Data: " + data);
      // Data received: 
      for (var i=0;  i < data.length; i++){
            data[i] = this.dec2hex(data[i]).toString();                            
      } //for 
      //Converted data:
      IR.Log("Receive Converted Data: " + data);

The following may come in handy:

// Data Conversion Routines \\
var convertBase = function (num) {
this.from = function (baseFrom) {
this.to = function (baseTo) {
return parseInt(num, baseFrom).toString(baseTo).toUpperCase();
return this;
return this;
// binary to decimal
this.bin2dec = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(2).to(10);
// binary to hexadecimal
this.bin2hex = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(2).to(16);
// decimal to binary
this.dec2bin = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(10).to(2);
// decimal to hexadecimal
this.dec2hex = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(10).to(16);
// hexadecimal to binary
this.hex2bin = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(16).to(2);
// hexadecimal to decimal
this.hex2dec = function (num) {
return convertBase(num).from(16).to(10);
//**************************************************\\ // converts an array of hex or decimal to the \\ // the ASCII code \\ // eg 75 Decimal = K \\ //**************************************************\\ this.NumToChar = function(tmp) {
var arr = tmp;
var str = '';
var c;
for (var i=0; i<arr.length; i++) {
if (arr[i] != 0) {
c = String.fromCharCode(arr[i]);
str += c;
return str;
} //**************************************************\\ // Formats eg FF into 0xFF \\ //**************************************************\\ this.FormatToHex = function(hx){
hx = '0x' + String('0' + hx).slice(-2);
return hx;

MQTT driver не обновляет значения после открытия i3 pro

Александр Бондарь 2 years ago in Products / Other drivers • updated by Dmitry - support (expert) 2 years ago 5

i3 pro на iOS не обновляет данные от mqtt драйвера при запуске.

Например, i3 pro запущен. Включаем свет. MQTT драйвер возвращает значение ON. Выключаем свет. MQTT драйвер возвращает значение OFF. Закрываем или сворачиваем приложение i3 pro. Запускаем снова приложение и видим значение ON, хотя свет все так же выключен.

Возможно ли заставить драйвер принудительно обновлять значения с брокера при открытии i3 pro?
