Insights and pictures of ComTrace RS232 Analyzer
Here we want to give you a general overview for the most important application windows of ComTrace.
Find more details in the user manual that is available in the download area.
Here in the picture you can see the main screen of the application in English language (selectable GERMAN or ENGLISH). In the following screenshots we have chosen a light skin of the application for clarity.
This main window contains the menu/icon control, the data grid for displaying the data and the control center with the fields "DISPLAY","TRIGGER" and "RECORDER", "VIEW", "CHARACTER", "TIME", "LIVE PORT SETTINGS"
To display the data, there are several modes, char sets and some kinds of timestamps available. Below there is a screenshot for each view type of "VERTICAL FULL", "DATA ONLY" and "DUMP" mode.
VERTICAL FULL - All signal and data lines in one view similiar to an ECG or oscilloscope.
DATAONLY - Only data in a compressed format for USASCII, EBCDIC, HEX, DEC, OCT, BIN.
DUMP - Only data but divided into combinations like "USASCII - HEX" or "EBCDIC - BIN" for example.
Recorder - START and STOP the recording or stop the recording by pressing PAUSE.
View - Select the display mode (vertical with signals, data only, data dump, with/without control indicator).
Character - character representation in ASCII, EBCDIC, HEX, BIN, DEC.
Time - Time stamp format (absolute, relative or delta time).
Live Port | Settings - Display of data and signals during recording (live) or analysis of recorded data, as well as setting of baud rate, data bits, stop bits and parity bits.
TRIGGER - Set up to 255 triggers of type START, STOP or INACTIVITY. These can be serialized as sequences. Therewith you can start and stop your recording under certain conditions to react exactly on specific events and data. So you optimize usage of the available recording volume.
Statistics and Status Line
Here ComTrace displays details of the selected or just received event.
Load display (CURRENT/SPITCH/QUALITY) of the interface and the totals of the recorded data and errors.
This gives you an insight into the quality and error rate of the connection during recording. This saves time during troubleshooting and unnecessarily long recordings when the basic quality of the connection is missing.
