    Note for windows users. If you are using Node v0.6.x you will need to have Python 2.7 installed. See node-gyp for instruction on getting a working node-gyp environment.

    Quick Example

    var SerialPort = require('serialport2').SerialPort;
    var port = new SerialPort();
     
    port.on('data', function(data) {
      console.log(data.toString());
    });
     
    port.on('error', function(err) {
      console.log(err);
    });
     
    port.open('COM4', {
      baudRate: 9600,
      dataBits: 8,
      parity: 'none',
      stopBits: 1
    }, function(err) {
      port.write("hello world");
      port.close();
    });
    var sp = require('../');
    sp.list(function(err, ports) {
      console.log(ports);
    });

    new SerialPort()

    Creates the serial port.

    open(portName, [options], [callback])

    Open the serial port.

    • portName - The name of the port to open. Example: Windows 'COM1', Linux '/dev/ttyUSB0'.
    • options - Options for open
      • baudRate - The baud rate [default: 9600]
      • dataBits - The data bits [default: 8]
      • parity - The parity, can be (none, odd, even) [default: 'none']
      • stopBits - The number of stop bits, can be (1, 1.5, 2) [default: 1]
      • flowControl - Enable flow control (true, false) [default: false]
    • callback(err) - Callback called after opening the port.

    write(buffer, [callback])

    Writes data to the serial port.

    Arguments

    • buffer - This can be a node Buffer object or a string.
    • callback(err, byteWritten) - Callback called after writing bytes.

    close(callback)

    Closes the serial port.

    Arguments

    • callback(err) - Callback called after the port is closed.

    Event: data

    Event emitted by SerialPort when data is available. The first argument will contain a Buffer with the data.

    Event: error

    Event emitted by SerialPort if an error occurs. The first argument will contain the error.

    list(callback)

    Lists the serial ports on the machine.

    Arguments

    • callback(err, ports) - Callback called after the list is retrieved.
