RS232 interface using matlab

ks0818ks0818 Posts: 2Member
I am trying to do a serial interface on a medical pump via Matlab using examples of serial communication that I have found on the internet, but what seems like a really simple task just isn't working for me. Here are the codes that I've been trying with:

!mode com1:9600,n,8,1
s = serial('COM1');


This should return me with some device information but on the command window, it only shows:

Serial Port Object : Serial-PORT

Communication Settings
Port: PORT
BaudRate: 9600
Terminator: 'LF'

Communication State
Status: closed
RecordStatus: off

Read/Write State
TransferStatus: idle
BytesAvailable: 0
ValuesReceived: 0
ValuesSent: 0

so here it is telling me that the communication is closed, yet in the code that I used, this status should be open shouldn't it?

If anyone can point me in the right direction it'll be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
