Serial communication in KioWare is accomplished over a serial port. All serial devices require such a connection for any communication.

The Configuration Tool will allow the user to provide a name for the device and provide a description. This name will be used for all communication between KioWare and the device. It is mandatory to use the identical string when calling into this method.


//The name of the device will be user defined in the Configuration Tool.
var devName = "rawserialdevice";
	if(!KioRawSerialDevice.Open(devName)) console.log(devName + " failed to open.");
