Your question does not make any sense. If you do not want to convert 3000 to bytes before sending it through a serial port then send it as a string.

Solution 1

The number itself is just a bunch of bytes, so why worry. You may send it as binary (preferred way, two bytes needed, if you don't exceed 65535) or using its string representation (4 bytes needed if you don't exceed 9999). In any case you have to send bytes over the serial line. Note that you may send all the bytes in a single function call.
