Troi Automatisering releases Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2 for FileMaker Pro 11

Maintenance update for plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 that gives you powerful access to the computer's serial ports.

March 27th, 2012, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2 for FileMaker Pro 11.

What is Troi Serial Plug-in?

Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro 11 easy and powerful access to one or more of the computer's serial ports:

  • Read from and write to the 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 3.2?

Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2 is a maintenance release and fixes a few bugs. Version 3.2 has these improvements:

  • Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 11.
  • Optimized the plug-in when running under Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
  • Added new switch to Serial_Version function: -UnregisterPlugin, which will remove the registration data. The plug-in will be in a unregistered state after this.
  • Made small change to the bundle (on Mac OS X) and FileVersion resource (on Windows) so it now reflects the correct version number.
  • Fixed a few small issues and made several smaller improvements.

This plug-in allows you to easily get data from your serial devices or send information to them. We invite you to test drive the new plug-in and see what you can do with it!
