I have the same problem as above. Have you been able to find a
solution to this.
In my case, I am trying to control a pump. The manufacturer provided
with their own software which works fine, however attempting to pass
the same hex command strings using either hyper terminal or matlab
does not yield any response from the pump. Any help in solving this
problem is appreciated.
