7188E.exe is a PC side utility which provides essential commands for, and the ability to download programs to

 the ICPDAS products. (including the 7188E series and the8X3X series).

Note: The user must first download the firmware file 'Vcomxxxx.exe' or the user programs based on the Xserver  to the 7188E

,and run them before using the 7188E.exe file.

Please refer to 8000CD\Napdos\7188e\MiniOS7\doc\eng\minios7\os7cmd_loaddir.htm for information on how to download the file.

7188E.exe is the Win32 console version and is basically a terminal program used to send data that the user keys into the Ethernet, and displays data received from the Ethernet on the PC screen.

Users can input a command and then press the Enter key to send this command to the 7188E once a connection has been established. If a connection is made to port 10000 of the 7188E,the user can use a command set to access the 7188E directly, for example: command '33' Xserver Command set  to the 7188E.

If a connection is made to port 10001 of 7188E, the user can access COM1 of the 7188E.

If a connection is made to port 10002 of 7188E, the user can  access COM2 of the 7188E.

If a 7000 series device is connected  to either COM1 or COM2 of the 7188E, the user can access the 7000 series device

directly, such as the ASCII command '$01M'.

The commands using a command listed below allow the user to test the connection using a 7000 series device connected to the COM2 port of the7188E. (Port 10002)

Note: After setting the command line '/cxxx' and '/tonnn', run the command '/rnnn' to begin the

test or to test again.¡@
