    how to receive vca data from an Nidek blocker


    #2
    g'day,
    The usual flow of data is from a pc to a blocker or blocker/edger combination. If I understand your post correctly you are wanting to send data to the pc from the blocker. What are you trying to do with the data from there?
    I have in the past set up communication between Nidek edging equipment and a pc by using RS232 cable.

        Alrighty, I think I can help but first will need to know what model blocker and/or edger and the pc operating system.
        There are communication options in the technician menus but getting to them is different with some of the different models.
        You can pm me if you prefer.

            let me know if this helps. Had to do a screen shot of it. Couldn't get the file to attach.

              Hi JGor,
              i know how to connect the devices, that is not the problem. Host of the data is the blocker, i want to download vca data via ethernet to an pc to process this data for another usecase.
              My question is how to communicate with the blocker to get the data I need. There is no ootb solution from Nidek for this, so i wanted to code it myself - sadly I don’t know how to start the communication with the blocker.

                I have found a rather convoluted solution for what I now understand you want to do. I'm just going to confirm that it works before I pass it on.

                  Hi, what software did you use to get the trace out?
