Well then, it's not raw, is it? :)

Let's go over this test output so we can make sure you're reading it right.

2B 30 30 30 30 20 31 11 00 00 80 00 0D 0A
0010.1011 0011.0000 0011.0000 0011.0000 0011.0000 0010.0000 0011.0001 0001.0001 0000.0000 0000.0000 1000.0000 0000.0000 0000.1101 0000.1010

First byte: ASCII, + or -.
Second, third, fourth, and fifth bytes: ASCII, numerical, 0 to 9.
Sixth byte: ASCII, space.
Seventh byte: ASCII, 0, 1, 2, or 4, for decimal place (this is where the datasheet is incorrect).
Eighth to eleventh bytes: Hex encoded bit array. As datasheet.
Twelfth byte: Hex encoded bit array, for the bar graph. Bit 7 is +/-, 1 for +. I'm not sure of the rest of that as I haven't looked at it.
Thirteenth byte: ASCII CR
Fourteenth byte: ASCII LF

Hmm. If you can humor me and try the latest patch. I'm wondering if the newline character is being excluded from the buffer. That would make the buffer length 13 characters and not 14.

Tom

That's more like it. It is, however, misinterpreting the output. Volts as ohms (AC and DC), ohms come up as negative, overload is causing an incorrect input string (I'll check the meter output with OL displayed shortly), temperature is negative and decimal place is reversed, not indicating unit. hFE is coming up as inductance, and microamps as diode test.

Progress!

E: Okay, overload display: ASCII again, ?0:?.

I get this with the latest patch posted here. See attached image. That doesn't look like raw bytes to me... it's not a consistent output, it varies when flipping between modes as you can see (i just changed to the next setting on the meter every few seconds)

later edit:  And the refusal to exit is back. With only the raw log window open , File , Exit , do you want to save before exit, no , .... nothing. Exited after accepting to save.

Patch released: http://www.ultradmm.com/release/wip/UltraDMMPatch.7z

The fail to exit issue should be resolved.
Raw Log displays output in hex format to avoid further confusion
Modified the FS9922 Code as per Monkeh's suggestions. Hopefully this will mean progress.

Cheers,

Tom

Actually, that's exactly what the meter returns. I see the same output via serial console.

Thanks. Hex output is better. At least it's the same width and no random characters introduced.

Nope, exit still fails when I say No at the question. App closes fine when I say yes, after a popup saying "saved ok". But the point is it shouldn't ask at all if all i did was watch raw log and maybe show a graph.

Hmm. I can't really reproduce this issue.  Can you send me your save file? What OS are you using?

The system prompts to save because it'll attempt to save open windows and their location. Some windows are not meant to be saved though.

I had the save file as c:\temp\a.xml
I wanted to record the screen to show you what I do when that happens but had some "sensitive" files in c:\temp so used the "save as" option in the software to save it as c:\temp\udmm\a.xml

After I closed and started the app again, I can't reproduce the not quitting on no issue anymore. Both xml files are identical though, so not sure what happened there.

I was ready with SysInternals' ProcMon started to export the log just in case I can reproduce it :(

Sorry for potentially wasting your time with this.

Found this though while trying to make the app refuse to quit ... connect to meter, open raw output, go to edit meters, properties, click test ... it will lock for a few seconds and then asks if meter is turned on. Raw output then resumes and everything seems ok.

I have an older meter that uses the ES51986 chip
http://www.cyrustek.com.tw/spec/ES51986.pdf

It isn't going to work currently, as there are a few small differences, but its pretty close.

*The packet length is different
- 1 less digit packet (no digit 4)
- 1 less option packet (no option 3,4)

*The option packets contents are slightly different

*The range byte has differnt ranges due to 22000 count vs 6000 count

Other than that it looks identical.
-Same serial settings, baud/parity etc.
-Same packet structure (except less info)

No worries.

Regarding the Test button. You can't Test on a port that's already open. I suppose I can add a check for that :)

Tom

I had the save file as c:\temp\a.xml
I played with the software and used save as option and saved it as c:\temp\udmm\a.xml

After I closed and started the app again, I can't reproduce the not quitting on no issue anymore.

What's the model number of the meter?

If you're willing to work with me, I can certainly add it to the software.

It's an "APPA 71"

http://www.appatech.com/upload/download/file113039186215566.pdf


You may notice that the manual says RS232 is for the APPA 73 only (not 71,72).
While this is true physically, the APPA 71 uses the same IC and it's easy to wire up your own cable inside from the IC's rs232 out pin to a connector on the case somewhere.
Also the button to enable RS232 does exist on the 71, they just cut off the top of the rubber and didn't put a hole in the plastic for it.  But you can cut your own hole in the plastic and then have a working rs232 button (its just a little below the surface, or you can swap the rubber bit with one of the other buttons you don't use, like hold,range, minmax)

This is exactly what i've done to get data logging from my APPA 71

I'm pretty sure the APPA 72  is the same.

Maybe this will help : 

http://flashingleds.wordpress.com/2010/11/30/unlocking-rs232-output-from-your-multimeter/

The guy has an iso-tech with the ES51978...  Lots of other links in the comments

Found it from this older thread: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/general-chat/unlocking-rs232-output-from-cyrustek-ic-multimeter/

Amprobe 34XR-A multimeter apparently uses  ES51960: http://www.cyrustek.com.tw/spec/ES51960.pdf

later edit: Maybe you can also export some presets from this linux software:  http://www.mtoussaint.de/qtdmm.html

Decimal place now correct for temperature, all other issues still remain.

Something is being misparsed.

Raw output in UltraDMM is: 2B-30-30-30-30-20-31-11-00-00-3F-00-0D-0A
True meter output is: 2B 30 30 30 30 20 31 11 00 00 80 00 0D 0A

SB4 is getting mangled somewhere.

Ok. New update deployed.

Changed the ISO Encoding on the Serial Port. Should fix the FS9922 mangling issue. (This one stumped me for a bit)
Added (Untested) ES51986 and ES51960 support (APPA 71/73 and Amprobe 34XR-A)

for example 5.167V on DMM is showing as 51.67V
RAW signal = 30-35-31-36-36-3B-38-30-3A-0A
Happens on other things too, ACV, Ohms, capacitance etc.

Continuity range showing kV
Detail...
With the DMM on continuity/diode mode, and with the probes open, the digital display shows ~2.4 kilovolts. hehe, thats a lot of volts
RAW = 30-32-34-31-32-31-39-30-30-0A
With probes shorted it shows zero.

Sometimes the app will refuse to close.
Detail...
I couldn't see any pattern to why it occurs but sometimes when i click the window close [X] the app prompts to save, I click "no" but it doesn't close.
It continues to run, and ignores repeated attempts to close and must be killed in task manager.
Other times it closes fine.

App will crash if you try use it without any multimeter device configured
Detail..
If you run the app with no meters configured then click meters/connect and gauges/add/digital it will throw a Unhanded exception.
"InvaidArgument=Value of "0" is not valid for 'index'

Here is the detail for the exception

Thanks for the feedback. Will implement shortly. I really gotta find the cause of the fail-to-close issue.

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

Ok. New update deployed.

Changed the ISO Encoding on the Serial Port. Should fix the FS9922 mangling issue. (This one stumped me for a bit)
Added (Untested) ES51986 and ES51960 support (APPA 71/73 and Amprobe 34XR-A)

Excellent, that did it. Although why there's any encoding stumps me.. the dangers of using silly libs? :)

Still left:
  • Overload handling
  • hFE unit
  • Temperature units

For some reason the SerialPort library uses ASCIIEncoding as default. It was rolling over Extended ASCII values.

Can you send me the raw dumps of the outstanding issues?

Still left:
  • Overload handling
  • hFE unit
  • Temperature units

Overload (in ohms range): 2B 3F 30 3A 3F 20 32 21 00 10 20 3D 0D 0A
hFE you're detecting fine, but the UI is indicating inductance (the chip can't even do inductance).
Temperature in Celsius: 2B 30 32 33 31 20 34 20 00 00 02 3D 0D 0A
Temperature in Fahrendumb: 2B 30 37 33 37 20 34 20 00 00 01 3D 0D 0A

As per datasheet.

Oh, and there are excess decimal places displayed in temperature mode.

E: Okay, excess decimal places in all modes.

Can you please lock the units and decimal places to what the meter is capable of reporting? Setting it to the 1kV range and seeing 1.0000V, when the meter is incapable of that resolution, is misleading, imo.

As the datasheet says, that is an ADC. A separate processor is used.

i dont see its much different from ES51922 used by UT61E the OP owns.

... Read the datasheet would you?

Look at the number of pins. Look at how the ES51966 has no RS232 pin, no LCD pins, etc. It's not the processor, it's just an ADC.
