- RS 232 serial sniffing 2 answers
I have one controller which processes data from a weigh scale. With it I can capture data using hyper terminal on a PC (RS232 communication - standard DB9 connector). Now I want to analyze it on another PC as well.
Unfortunately, my controller has only one RS232 output. Can I tap another RS 232 from the existing signal cable (by stripping the cable, taking out parallel signals and all)?
Or I need to use any custom hardware or cable?
Ah well, that was my original question, and I did try using the circuit, the problem is I can receive data only on one terminal. The splitter is not working. Totally Clueless now. Any Ideas ???
