This newly released video walks you through using a serial to USB converter with your groov EPIC PR1 controller.
In our latest video, Applications Engineer Ben Orchard is back to give you step-by-step instructions for reading serial data via the EPIC's USB port with a RS-232 to USB converter.
To show you how this works, Ben uses the groov EPIC Learning Center (GRV-EPIC-LC) and a GPS device that outputs an
RS-232 data string.
- An authentic FTDI device
- Or a powered USB hub to expand your options
What do you want to do with your data?
Hint: it depends on your application...
- Send serial data to a cloud service or MQTT broker via Node-RED
- Use serial data in a control program like PAC Control
You'll see how to set up each of these options.
