Is it possible to post an example of the ECM-1240 binary protocol with a list of the values for each data element in the message after they would be parsed. What I mean by this is that the list would include what the Voltage is, what the Ch1 Watt Seconds Value is, what the seconds are, etc.
I had to put the effort to develop my own software for the ECM-1240 on hold for a little while but I'm back trying to finish it up. I'd like to have an example of the protocol that I can manually feed into my software. Then I can validate that my software is parsing the message properly by comparing each data element against the list.
Solved this through email, but I'll post a possible solution for others:
Easiest way to do this would be hook up a constant load to one of your channels through a breaker that isn't often used (80W lightbulb for example). Since you know the power that load draws, you'll be able to identify if you're correctly calculating the value.
