how are you connecting the projectors to the serial ports?

unless they have serial ports to control them then you will need some hardware 
in between ... if they do have serial ports you'll need the control protocol 
they use .. from the pd side of things [comport] should be able to send the 
data, once you know what needs to be sent.

While you are setting up and testing it can help to connect a terminal to the 
port, depending on how the receiving end is behaving, but [comport] works fine 
on the Pd end. I haven't done it for a few years, but it should still work.
