Publisher's Description:

Docklight RS232 Terminal - RS232 Monitor - Docklight is a testing, analysis and simulation tool for serial communication protocols (RS232, RS485/422 and others). It allows you to monitor the communication between two serial devices or to test the serial communication of a single device. Docklight is easy to use and runs on almost any standard PC using Windows Vista/XP/2000/NT 4/98 operating system. Key functions include:

* Simulating serial protocols - Docklight can send out user-defined sequences according to the protocol used and it can react to incoming sequences. This makes it possible to simulate the behavior of a serial communication device, which is particularly useful for generating test conditions that are hard to reproduce with the original device (e.g. problem conditions).

* Logging RS232 data - All serial communication data can be logged using two different file formats: use plain text format for fast logging and storing huge amounts of data. Or create a HTML file with styled text that lets you easily distinguish between incoming and outgoing data or additional information.

* Detecting specific data sequences - In many test cases you will need to check for a specific sequence within the RS232 data that indicates a problem condition. Docklight manages a list of such data sequences for you and is able to perform user-defined actions after detecting a sequence, e.g. taking a snapshot of all communication data before and after the error message was received.

* Responding to incoming data - Docklight lets you specify user-defined answers to the different communication sequences received. This allows you to build a basic simulator for your serial device within a few minutes. It can also help you to trace a certain error by sending out a diagnostics command after receiving the error message.

* Docklight has been successfully tested with many popular USB-to-RS232 converters, virtual null modem software, and many other Embedded Development tools that appear as a virtual COM port.

The Docklight RS232 serial data program was exactly what we needed to capture customer generated code for analysis. In less than an hour I had configured the capture process to display easily viewable decoded commands to aid in our analysis. I have already recommended this program to several of my engineering friends. The interface and setup is very easily and intuitive. I only needed to consult the help manual for a couple of tricky things I wanted to do. Excellent!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am a long time Prom Com Plus user and recently started several USB CDC projects. Docklight has been instremential in allowing me to continue my development without any wasted time. I am very impressed with the simple script setup and execution (very well thought out!). I would highly recommend this program to any professional that needs to log and generate serial data.

keep up the great work!

Docklight serial comms software for Loggers

The Docklight software offers very versatile options in setting up send sequences to external devices via the serial port and receive and display the responses. Windows options permit the received values to be copied to clipboard and then to a spreadsheet.

it`s handy

i've just checked read data from your program.i sent data from my program and read data from your program. i also search for praogram that can send data to port rs232 without needing any device to connect to it. because i want to check my program if my program works properly for reading the data.but i think i should first connect the device to the port then go for check it.
thank you
