COM Port Toolkit is a protocol, data, and timing analyzer designed specifically to help isolate problems with serial (RS-232/422/485) data communication control networks. COM Port Toolkit is an indispensable test tool for industrial control and SCADA design engineers, OEM development and test engineers, system integrators, field service and maintenance engineers. The product enables shorter and less costly development intervals for serial communications equipment, improved mean-time-to-repair following equipment.

You can use this program for implementing, debuging or reverse-engineering serial protocol.
The program can send and capture ASCII and HEX data. Split data option helps to format received data. You can change communications chanel's settings easily
including setting of non-standard baudrate.
You can write or use a script written by other developers
to automate some specific tasks: CRC calculations, special
transfer rules, outgoing data modifications and etc. Internal
scripting language is an enhanced, C-like programming
language, including if, else, for, do and while constructs
and the usage of user defined functions.
The program can capture serial communications between
the device and the software by using special driver.
So the program acts as a software protocol analyzer in
this mode. This feature is available under Windows 9x, Me, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 (32 bits only).

Users Praise COM Port Toolkit and Staff:
|“||...I have used your software to diagnose and troubleshoot electrical issues through Comport communication. I first found your software, because I needed to send comport commands to a UART. Using a level converter and your application, I was able to do this. I then needed to flood the channel…|
…well long story short, your application is the only tool that I have found of value for what I have been testing. I threw my hands up in the air when I attempted to write a VB.net application to send comport commands (very difficult), and your application has saved the day. Again, thank you for all of your time and energy in building this application.

Thanks very much for your prompt reply to my feature request. I'm very impressed that not only did you reply but actually added the feature.
Even though my free trial is not over, I've gone ahead and placed my order for the license. My use of your COM Port Toolkit paid for itself several times over on the very first use!
|“||Just Wanted to drop you an Email to tell you how much I like your Program. I use it all the time for debugging the Modbus and DF1 protocols, It is nice to see someone who continually finds ways to improve an already excellent program!||”|
