Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to monitor serial communications with several COM port devices simultaneously? If yes, we can tell you about a great solution that will help you do this with minimum efforts.

Let’s imagine that you want to test a new installation of a series of serial monitoring devices. The problem you may face here is the inconsistencies in the data generated by the hardware. To overcome this issue, you may use specialized serial protocol analyzer software that will allow you to capture serial data transmissions between every newly installed device and a COM port its connected to.

Also, with a dedicated solution like Electronic Team’s Serial Port Analyzer, you can load all previously saved monitoring sessions, compare them and identify problems in a timely manner.

In order to compare several sessions with a serial port analyzer app, you should do the following:

  1. Head to the app’s Session menu and start or open a monitoring session.

  2. Then, select Session > Compare sessions.
  3. Compare sessions with serial port analyzer software
  4. After that, choose the file with the session you need to compare your current session with and click “Open”. Open the required monitoring session file

  5. Now, the two sessions will be opened in two adjacent windows so that you can easily compare them and see all differences. Analyze serial protocol sessions
