Supporting serial RS-232 and Ethernet communications, RMCLink provides full functionality to read and write registers, read bits, and issue commands to all RMC controllers.
RMCLink comes with sample projects to help you get up and running quickly. The RMCLink help includes detailed walk-throughs and numerous code snippets.
Supported Programming Languages and Applications
RMCLink can be used from numerous programming languages and applications. It has three interfaces to make it intuitive and easy to use from any language.
The table below lists supported programming languages and applications and the respective RMCLink interface that should be used for that language. All the interfaces are included in the RMCLink download.
RMCLink includes fully-functioning example projects for many programming languages. These examples are ready-to-use and illustrate concepts such as reading positions, issuing commands, and reading plots.
Supported RMC Communication Ports
RMCLink can communicate via Ethernet or serial RS-232. The table below lists the ports on the RMCs that it can communicate with.
|RMC Module ||RMCLink Supported Ports |
|RMC150E ||10/100 ENET port on the RMC150E CPU module |
|RMC100 ||ENET port on the RMC100-ENET module |
|RS-232 Monitor port on the RMC100 CPU module |
|RMC75E ||10/100 Ethernet port |
|RMC75S ||RS-232 Monitor port |
Note: If the serial settings on the second RMC75S RS-232 port are identical to the fixed RS-232 Monitor port settings, RMCLink can communicate with that port.
|RMC75P ||RS-232 Monitor port |
