Windmill Software has announced a new version of the ComDebug data logging and com port troubleshooting software. The new version works with Windmill 7 64-bit, as well as Microsoft Windows, lets users enter and display data in hexadecimal code, ASCII code, or binary format, and logs data from serial instruments such as PIC Microcontrollers, RFID readers, PLCs, and data loggers.

The software collects data from devices connected to the PC's com port over RS232, RS422, RS485, and Modbus. A terminal emulator lets users troubleshoot serial port connections. When monitoring com port communications, users can reportedly see all bytes sent and received, including non-printing characters like carriage returns.

With ComDebug users can quickly identify and correct communication errors, according to Windmill Software. The software can send and receive unsigned integers, single bits, floating points, 16-bit 2s complement integers, and other types of data. It can control the state of the PC's serial port output lines - setting them high or low - and show users the state of the port input lines.
