Troi Automatisering releases Troi Serial Plug-in 4.0 for FileMaker Pro 14


Updated serial communication plug-in adds support for 64-bit architecture with FileMaker Pro 14


May 12th, 2015, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of Troi Serial Plug-in 4.0 for FileMaker Pro 14.



What is Troi Serial Plug-in?


Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro easy and powerful access to external devices with a serial interface:


- Read from and write to the (virtual) serial ports of the computer directly from FileMaker Pro without the need of a separate application.

- Native FileMaker script triggering, to get incoming data into the database.

- "Serial_Control" function to temporarily suspend the incoming data stream and resume it when you are interested in the data.

- "Wait for Match" function to wait for a specific text before triggering.

- The possibility to open an unlimited number of serial ports and to trigger different scripts for different ports.



What is new in version 4.0?


Troi Serial Plug-in 4.0 has been tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 12, 13 and 14:


- Added support for 64-bit architecture with FileMaker Pro 14

- Improved the example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12, to support the 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro 14


This version has the following new functionality and fixes:


- Added new switch -GetRegistrationState to the Serial_Version function: this switch allows you to check if the plug-in is currently registered. We also updated the Version example file to show the use of the new script

- Fixed a problem in the Simple Serial, Weigh and Terminal example files
