watchpax & rs232

Hi. I want to control the shutter of my projector (panasonic dw6300) via rs232 in WO.

This all works good with a desktop pc, but for this project I want to use the watchpax.

Now this does not have a rs232 port, so can I use an usb-rs232 adapter?

Would it work with any converter or are any specific supported? I'm assuming I can't install any drivers etc. on the pax..

does this work at all?

No, you can not.

No.

That is the reason, WATCHPAX is 0 config so you can not add any drivers and no USB serial drivers are present.

 

Probably the only way this can be done is with an IP to serial converter running on the network

and use an Output String object set to Network Port (TCP or UDP).
