Processing serial data when buffer is full/processing data from network connection (ZT Series)

I have a ZT600 that I am developing an external device for that would use a sensor for sending unpause commands to the printer via serial.
The issue that I am having is that if a large print job or multiple small print jobs have been sent to the printer, the commands are queued up and not processed until the jobs are either processed or cleared.
I have also tried to set the capture.channel1.port to serial and use a custom WML menu that would query on a timer in order to see if pulling the data would work, but that runs into the same problem.
Is there any way to process the serial data so that it is processed separately from the data that is sent via the wired network?
