I am frustrated. I wanted to use a FLiP connected to a weighing balance, hoping to use USB (and an RS232 to USB converter). Apparently, that is not feasible.
I then thought I could directly use RS232 since that is what the balance uses. In Blockly under Communicate Protocols there are serial blocks but I cannot determine how to physically wire the FliP to the RS232 so that I can do anything with these. Attached is the Serial Initialize block description but I don't see how that relates to wiring CD, RxD, TxD, DTR, DSR, RTS, CTS RI which are standard cable connections for RS232 (I know some of these are not always needed)
Can anyone help?
