How to test RS232 commands? [SOLVED]
« on: February 26, 2012, 03:51:15 pm »
Hi,
What is the best way to quickly test an RS232 command for an amplifier?
I add the commands using "view template" and then "edit ruby commands".
Thanks,
Mark

Thanks Hari, it's been a while....

In the mean time, I found a very nice GC100 testing utility for OSX / Mac:

Since I am using a Mac, this is VERY useful. I now know that the GC100, the serial cable and the Arcam are responding fine. I just need to do it the right way in LMCE :->> Global Caché has a test util on their web site for Windows users, too.
