Logging RS232 data between two devices

The extended Docklight Scripting software provides an easy-to-use program language and a built-in editor to create and run automated test jobs. Docklight Scripting is also network- enabled and allows TCP or UDP connections. See Docklight TCP/UDP for an introduction.

If you require serial or TCP communications in your own Windows C++, C#, Java or Excel application, the Docklight DLL Automation API allows you to implement communication features in minimal time and minimal amount of own code.
