Applies to: Docklight, Docklight Scripting and Docklight Pro Monitor (all versions), Article ID: dl_faq034
RS232/RS422/RS485 monitoring using “EZ-Tap Pro” (ProTap) and “Versa-Tap” (VersaTap) is supported in Docklight, Docklight Scripting and Docklight Pro Monitor.
Please refer to the original documentation from Stratus Engineering, Inc. for detailed information and technical support for Versa-Tap(TM) and EZ-Tap Pro(TM).
You can choose between Docklight (or Docklight Scripting), for advanced data sequence detection and reformatting, but with limitations when it comes to high baud rates and high data throughput. Or use Docklight Pro Monitor, our new lightweight and lightning-fast monitoring tool for high-speed connections. We recommend trying our free evaluation versions, and decide which software is the best fit for your application.
* The Versa-Tap “Synchronous HDLC Mode” is not supported currently.
* Docklight does not expose the full internal Versa-Tap time resolution (microseconds), but will process communication data with the standard Docklight time resolution (milliseconds).
* For customers within the EU, Switzerland and Norway, EZ-Tap Pro and Versa-Tap are available as “Docklight Tap Pro” and “Docklight Tap 485” for direct order. See the FAQ link below.
