Details

 

This setting enables the use of specific character code as the stop character that can close the serial data block. Stop character code itself is defined by the Stop Character Code (S1) setting. It is also possible to have the serial data block closed not on the stop character itself but after a predefined number of characters after the stop character. This is done through the Number Of Post Characters (P1) setting.

 

Serial data blocks are related to routing the data in the serial-to-Ethernet direction. See serial-to-Ethernet data routing for more information.

 

If Use Stop Character is 0 (disabled) the serial data block, once opened, never closes.
