TCP driver help needed

I’m looking to use the TCP driver to connect a device to my Ignition system. The device will spit out a binary stream of variable length triggered by hardware inside of it. The Ignition system should connect to the device and start decoding the binary stream based on the default header which is transmitted and information contained within it.

The information on the TCP driver is pretty sparse, … nd_tcp.htm, or maybe I’m not looking in the right location. Any tips/tricks are appreciated.

Kind regards,

This is pretty far outside the capabilities of the TCP driver - it’s meant to consume simple, predictable strings from things like barcode scanners.

I think you’ll need to do what you’re asking about in either scripting or with the module SDK.

thanks for providing this info.
