ASCII sender / receiver

Use this tool to obtain CAN messages with saved string in its data part. This is particularly useful for devices driven by so called ASCII codes. The string entered in the Value box is being written from the data byte entered in the First box. Unused data bytes after the last text character are filled with the value entered in the Code box.

        Use the ASCII receiver dialog to monitor the text strings saved in the data part of CAN message. Enter the position of the first byte (character) of the text in the First box. You can open the ASCII log to view the history and time sequence of sent and received messages. Press the Log button in the ACSII receiver dialog to open the log. The Dir column shows whether the message is received (R-->) or sent (<--S). Press the Pause button to hold the listing.
