Software developers must often be confused by Microsoft's Win32
COMM API, used to develop serial comm applications under Windows
2000, Windows NT, and Windows 95/98. The confusion stems from
the fact that Win32 COMM API is a general purpose utility, with
very complex syntax.
MOXA PComm Pro offers you a better solution. No matter which
brand of multiport serial board you have used, standard COMs,
Digi, Equinox, Moxa, or others, MOXA PComm Pro is the right tool
MOXA PComm Pro is aimed to help you:
- Speed up serial comm application development
- Troubleshoot serial comm problems between two devices
- Analyze serial comm performance
MOXA PComm Pro includes easy-to-use API functions that are specially
designed for async comm, eliminating the problems inherent in
Microsoft's more complex Win32 API, and reducing development time
In addition, MOXA PComm Pro provides useful utilities, such as
Data Scope and Performance Analyzer, that help you quickly troubleshoot
any serial comm problems.
Easy to Develop
MOXA PComm Pro provides more than 50 easy-to-use API functions
with VB, C/C++ and Delphi interfaces that are specially designed
for serial comm applications. Compare this with Microsoft's Win32
COMM API, in which the same functions are general purpose, and
thus very complicated for serial comm developers to use.
MOXA PComm Pro also supports built-in functions for file transfer
protocols such as ZModem, YModem, XModem, Kermit, and ASCII, making
the programming of file uploading-and-downloading easier than
Easy to Troubleshoot
The Data Scope utility, which uses two standard COM ports, behaves
the same as a PC-based data scope, letting you set a trigger condition,
capture comm data, and monitor signal status with time stamp on
an RS-232 line. The under-monitor line speed can be as high as
921.6 Kbps, depending on the speed of the COM ports. You can also
save data and status to a hard disk for later analysis, and with
the supplied debugging cable, comm activities can be monitored
on-line without interference.
MOXA PComm Pro supports not only standard COM ports, but also
all multiport boards that support Win32 COMM API. This includes,
among others, Digi, Equinox, and Moxa.
