Serial Start


The Serial Start Node starts a Serial connection that has already been set up in Project Settings.

Serial Communication in Incari is available as a plugin and is enabled as default. However, in the case that it is disabled in the Plugins Editor, it will not appear in the Project Settings and Serial Start will not show up in the Toolbox. Please refer to the Plugins Editor to find out more information.

It is important to note that while the Serial Start Node starts a Serial connection, it may not completely finish establishing said connection when the Node is executed. This could lead to the Logic attached to its Output Pulse to not work even though there is technically nothing wrong. In order to avoid this, it is highly suggested to use the On Serial Start Node instead. This way, the Logic will only execute once the Serial connection has definitely been established.

Again, the user must first use the Serial Start Node to open the connection. Separately, the On Serial Start Node can be used to execute the desired Communication Logic.

Scope: Project, Scene.
