Hi I am working on project named serial communication between arduino and printer. After data is received by photodiode, how it can be sent to arduino and then "Is arduino able communicate with serial printer" ???

I have printer of brother company.

Any help will definately appreciated. Thank you.

Arduino has a serial port which you can connect to the serioal port of the printer, however you should check if the printer works on 5Volt or on 12 Volt as you might need level shifters for that google max232 for shifters.

Do you have a link to the specs of the printer?
