Serial port trigger event occurs when data is received on the monitored RS232 serial port.

Typical usage: (1) Printer replacement. You are retiring the existing serial port-connected label printer. In its place NiceLabel Automation will accept the data, extract the values for label objects from the received print stream, and create a print job for the new printer model. (2) Weight scales. Weight scales provides data about the weighted object. NiceLabel Automation extracts the required data from the received data stream, and prints a label. For more information on how to parse and extract data, see section Understanding Filters.
