Get (G) command format:GML

 

Init (I) command effect:Initialized unconditionally, through network command, serial command, or quick initialization

 

Post-initialization value:255 (bytes)

 

Change takes effect:After reboot or exiting the serial programming mode

Details

 

Maximum Packet Length defines after how many new bytes recorded into the serial-to-Ethernet buffer a break condition will be generated. Break conditions are related to routing the data in the serial-to-Ethernet direction. See serial-to-Ethernet data routing for more information.

 

Maximum Packet Length is irrelevant when current Transport Protocol (TP) [setting/ parameter] is 1 (TCP) because in this mode the DS ignores the value of the Maximum Packet Length setting and uses the run-time parameter of 127 bytes.
