Before using the ASCII protocol, you need to select it from the machine’s front panel. Press the MENU button until you get to “set communication protocol” and then choose the ASCII protocol. This is saved in the non-volatile memory, so the machine will remain as ASCII even after cycling power. To check that the protocol has been selected, and to confirm that the communication is OK, send the” Connection Status” comnad to the VS-3232Vxl. It should reply by sending back the string OK!!
