Port monitor is a tool for monitoring of data sent and received over a serial port. It is useful for debugging and commissionning to see if the peripherial device (I/O module, 3rd party controller, ...) is responding correctly. Select the controller to be monitored in the window. It is only possible to monitor one controller at a time.
The Port Monitor is controlled by three buttons:
Start capture data
Stop capture data
The data format for display can be selected (Ascii - text data, AsciiD7 - textová data with the highest bit masked (this is used with Sauter controllers), Hex, and Decimal).
In the lower part there are tabs to switch between the channels.
