Sorry for the long delay, i've received the relay and instructions to fit. Thanks for your help, you can close the thread.
Wilhelm I've been waiting over a month now for this relay. Where is the delay coming from? Can you supply any update? Can you supply any information on the relay itself? This project has been on hold because of this delay!
No sign of relay yet...
10 days and counting since you sent it.
Perhaps you could supply the part number for it and I can try and source it myself.
Wilhelm, I still haven't received the relay, do you have a tracking number or can you confirm it has been posted?
Thanks Wilhelm, email sent. If you can give me some info on how to switch the relay too, it would be a great help.
I'm looking for info on using the relay output on the TER-GX300. All the documentation I read says there's a relay (1A 30V) available, but looking at the PCB, there doesn't seem to be any fitted.
Can you confirm the presence of a relay on this board?
Thanks Wilhelm, got it solved by putting the file on the module, you can close the thread now.
Q: Type of module? A: TER-GX300S
Q: Firmware version? A: 07.03.301
Q: Type of starter kit you have? none
(S1, S1B, S2, S3, S4, EVK1, EVK2, none, other)
I've written a program that sends a fie from my PC to an FTP server. The program works great in TelitPy 1.5.2 package, however when I upload it to the module and run it from there it hangs when trying to read the file on the serial port. Here's a sample of my code:
SER.send('Waiting for Connect......\n\r')
SER.send('Reading File on Serial Port...\n\r')
in_file = open("test.txt","r")
text = in_file.read()
#Send escape sequence
I connect correctly to the FTP server and receive the prompt "Reading file on Serial Port", at this point nothing happens, and it appears to timeout (10secs or so).
Any ideas why it works on the development platform but not on the module? Does the file need to be in a particular location on my PC in order to be read into the serial port?
Using the TER300S, opening a FTP connection gave me an error in RSTERM. I updated the firmware and now it works.
the firmware on the module. it now is 07.03.301
Sorted it out, The firmware did need to be updated. You can close this thread now.
Q: Type of module? A:TER-GX300S
Q: Firmware version? A: 07.02.304
Q: Type of starter kit you have? AARLogic C10/3 rev4
(S1, S1B, S2, S3, S4, EVK1, EVK2, none, other)
I have an AARlogic c10 and I’m using it to open an FTP connection wth the command AT#FTPOPEN=<server:port>,<username>,<password>,<mode>. I am using RSTerm. No problems here.However, when I take out the sim and insert it in my GER300S and power it up and do the exact same thing, I get an error and it doesn’t connect. I can send SMS messages amd email but not FTP.
The firmware is 07.02.304. I tried to update it but XPF doesn’t seem to work with my module. Can you update the module and if so how. Will this fix the problem and if not what else could it be the problem.
I take it Wilhelm, that the manufacturer hasn't replied yet. Its been over a week now.
Any word from manufacturer yet?
Port is set correctly.
Like I said earlier, everything works well with a real COM port on my desktop PC, its when I switch to my laptop and use the USB<->SER cable and connector that I run into trouble.
The OS on both my laptop and desktop are WinXP Home Edition SP3.
I've tried to use the cable and connector on my desktop and the same problem occurs. I'm sure its something simple, these things generally are.
I'll check the BIOS on my laptop and see if something there helps.
Yes to both questions.
On a side note (could be posting in the wrong forum but I think its related to this problem), the TelitPy 1.5.2 - PythonWin development package always returns an error that the COM port is Busy whenever I run one of the example applications (eg. ListSMS).
This works fine for me on a normal RS232 as expected. Can you see if that also occurs in your test setup?
Yes I have tried to type after the ">" prompt! (Sure how else would I enter the SMS message?!). I've even tried just hitting <CTRL+Z> in the hope it might send a blank text, but no nothing happens. I need to reset the module in order to get an AT command working.
Same behaviour happens with HyperTerminal. Here's what I typed:
at+cmgs=+353(my mobile no),145
And its at that prompt that it hangs.
I have a TER-GX300 (07.03.301). The module works fine on a real COM port I have on my desktop PC, however when I switch to my laptop and use the USB->SER it doesn't seem to work fully. RSTerm crashes whenever I try to send an SMS.
I have baudrate set to 115200
Flow Control = Hardware
I have followed installation instructions USB_RS232_Cable.doc (found in CAB-ROU-232.zip)
My Prolific Driver Ver is 18.104.22.168 (updated to latest version after the version downloaded from your website didn't work)
I figured there was Wilhelm, thanks for your help, you can close the thread now.
