(see setting description format info here)
|Function:||Defines the parity mode of the serial port of the DS (when in the data routing mode)|
|Set (S) command format:||SPRx, where x: 0 (off), 1 (even), 2 (odd), 3 (mark), 4 (space)|
|Post-initialization value:||0 (off)|
|First introduced:||Earlier than "baseline" V3.14/V3.51|
Parity setting defines the parity mode of the serial port of the DS, unless overridden by the Parity (PR) parameter .
DS hardware does not have an option of two stop bits. The way around this is to set the Parity to 3 (mark). Since this means that the parity bit will always be set to 1 and since the parity bit is always transmitted in front of the stop bit, this will have the same result as having two stop bits.
The DS transmits the serial data with the parity bit correctly set but does not verify correctness of parity bits in the received data.
Parity is always off when the serial port is in the serial programming mode .
