SeriCon software displays text, numbers, and graphics from received data, and can send mouse clicks, texts, and numbers. It can use control-bits in a serial port for pulse generation and measurement.
SeriCon is a versatile and powerful PC interface program that allows you to connect to a wide range of target hardware for data transfer and control. It has advanced features that enable you to receive and display not only texts but also numbers and graphics from your target device. Furthermore, it can send mouse clicks, texts, and numbers.
SeriCon's unique ability to utilize the control-bits in a serial port to measure and generate pulses is a great advantage. This feature makes it an ideal tool for developing applications that require precise timing and signal control.
One of the most important features of SeriCon is its ability to stop the normal character mode and switch to "function" mode when it receives three 0 bytes. In this mode, you can use SeriCon to convert "function type" byte and "arguments" data into texts and graphics, similar to C printf and Win32 drawing functions.
Another advantage of SeriCon is its ability to send not only characters but also 8 / 16 / 32-bits binary numbers with ease. The program also offers automation features such as variable periods and the number of times a command should be sent.
SeriCon also allows you to send mouse clicks on the graphics to your target device using the signal byte defined by it. To aid in the programming of the target device, SeriCon comes with a library and example codes that include source files.
Additionally, SeriCon utilizes CTS, DSR, and RLSD (DCD) to read and display signals from your hardware. You can also display the level changes (pulse) and level durations with linear or exponential transformations for each bit (pin) of your hardware.
SeriCon can also leverage RTS and DTR to send signals with variable specifications (periods, level durations, and numbers of cycles) to your target hardware, including DC or stepper motors.
Furthermore, SeriCon allows you to specify a file, such as a sound file or program, to execute an action when an event occurs. You can define an event to be a situation where an input pulse count reaches a specified value or when a specified character is received.
SeriCon offers a free version with some restrictions on its functions, and the main window has an advertising area. However, the full license key unlocks all the features of the program.
Overall, SeriCon is an excellent PC interface program that offers advanced features for controlling and monitoring your hardware devices. Its versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, including industrial automation, robotics, and hobby electronics projects.
