String data from Click PLC to Ignition

Hi all
I have a barcode scanner connected to a Click PLC (C2-03CCPU), using modbus, i have the data already visible to ignition, my problem is on the data conversion.

i need to recreate, in ignition; the data (comes as short) back to it original format (char or string)

can someone help me please?

Use the HRS type designator.
