 Thanks for all of ur kind help.
I need to send an "enter" command to the device through my expect script.Is it possible?

send "\r"

Although the usual new line character is \n when you're printing to screen or outputting to file, you use \r when outputting to a spawned process; \r is [Ctrl-M] or "carriage return" and \n is [Ctrl-J] or  "line feed" in terms of characters generated
