Instruction Manual
Interface instruction
NE216 progr. 01
1.1. General
The serial interface can accomplish the same functions as the display and the keyboard of the counter. It is
possible to call up data and to change the programming of parameters. In general, the counter is controlled
via a PC. However, it is also possible to use another device with similar features.
2. Transmission protocol
th
The transmission is effected character by character in ASCII code. Each character consists of 8 bits. The 8
bit is the parity bit, and in case of "no parity" it will always be sent as zero.
The counter responds to every request of the PC via the serial interface if the data has been correctly transmitted.
Character transmission is introduced with the start-of-text character <STX> and closed by the end-of-text
character <ETX>. In addition, the counter sends a <CR> (carriage return) after <ETX>. This allows the input
of a complete data block by means of one command (in high-level languages such as BASIC).
After <STX> there will follow an address allotted to the counter, making it possible to specifically address the
counter within a serial network. After the address, please indicate the position that you wish to read out or to
program. In case of a programming command, you will need to enter a "P" (for programming) and the data
(parameters).
The protocol is classified into three groups as indicated below:
a) Read memory space (READ instruction):
<STX> identifier line <ETX> [<CR>]
b) Write memory location (WRITE instruction):
<STX> identifier line P data <ETX> [<CR>]
c) Special commands:
<STX> identifier parameters <ETX> [<CR>]
<STX>

(identifier=35; line=02)
Important! The blanks between the particular characters of the commands only serve the purpose of better
legibility. PC input must be without blanks. Control characters (less than 20Hex) are in "pointed"
brackets. Any incorrect protocol received from the PC will be replied by an error message, provided NE216 remains still accessible. Please refer to chapter “Error messages” on page 4.

2. Reading of memory locations
All memory locations indexed with a line number in the programming scheme enable read out (except the
separating lines that are indexed by dashes).
The protocol: <STX> Address Line <ETX> [<CR>] can be used for each line.
The counter response may vary in protocol length from one line to the other, since it depends on the data
length of the respective memory location.
NE216 allows for read out both in RUN and PGM mode. The only difference lies in the counter response
which will come with an "R" or a "P" in the mode parameter, as described in the following.
Response to a Read instruction (general):
<STX> identifier line mode data <ETX> <CR>
Mode
VZ
Data
P= NE216 is in programming (PGM) mode
R= NE216 is in RUN mode
Negative sign, only transferred with negative values
max. total of digits, with preceding zeroes w/o decimal point
(Exception: line 6 – with decimal point)
2.1. Examples for reading memory locations
The following applies to the examples below:
Counter address (Identifier) = 35; Counter mode = R (RUN-mode)
Read main counter PC (line=01, displayed value =1500)

3. Writing of memory locations
All memory locations indexed with a line number in the programming plan enable writing (programming),
except for the separating lines (indexed by dashes) and lines 1 and 5.
Protocol: <STX> identifier line P [VZ] Data <ETX> [<CR>] can be applied to each line.
Counter response upon parameterization is the same as for a read command for the respective line.
Programming of memory locations is enabled both in RUN and PGM mode.
Programming in RUN mode:
Parameterization in lines 21-23, 30-33, 35, 43, 44 and 51-54 will not become effective until a switching
operation from PGM mode to RUN mode. Please see chapter 5.2 for how to switch to PGM mode. The
parameters in all other lines will be immediately effective after entry.
Any parameterization done in RUN mode will only be retained non-volatile after having accomplished
the switching operation from PGM to RUN mode. If omitted, the previously programmed parameters
will be restored in the event of power failure.
Write-command (general):
<STX> identifier line P [VZ] data <ETX> [<CR>]
3.1. Examples for writing of memory locations
Following applies to the examples below:
Counter address (identifier) = 35; counter in mode = R (RUN)

4. Special commands
In the case of special commands, we are talking about instructions that do not refer to any line number
(memory location on operator plan), with the exception of command "Clear current count".
4.1. Clear current count
The following special command will clear the current count PC (line 1). This line is disabled for parameterization. The remaining lines of the programming chart (except separating lines) are cleared by entering parameter 0 (as previously described in chapter 4).
The instruction to clear corresponds to a reset via C key. The counter response upon clearing is the same as
with reading of the corresponding line.
General: <STX> address line <DEL> <ETX>
Example:
Clear current count PC
Identifier =35, Line=01, Status=RUN mode
Command:
<STX>3501<DEL><ETX>
Response:
<STX>3501R00000<ETX><CR>
<DEL> = 7FHex
4.2. Switching the counter to PGM or RUN mode
This command allows you to switch the counter to and fro between PGM and RUN mode upon every data
call. Both identifier and status are replied.
General: <STX> identifier <DC1> <ETX>
Example:
Identifier=35, Status=RUN mode, current line = 1, displayed value =15
Command:
<STX>35<DC1><ETX>
<DC1> = 11Hex
Response:
<STX>35P<ETX><CR>
Repeating the command will switch the counter back to RUN mode
Command:
<STX>35<DC1><ETX>
Response:
<STX>35R<ETX><CR>
4.3. Reading out the counter identification
Identification data are read only and will be followed by two parameters: Command parameter "I" (for identification) or selection parameter "T" (type and software number) or "D" (date and hardware version) for the
several identification data.
Read out device type and software number:
Address=35, Type =NE216, software number =01
Command:
<STX>35IT<ETX>
Response:
<STX>35NE216 01<ETX><CR>
Read out date and version number:
Address=35, Datum=02.10.96, version number=01
Command:
<STX>35ID<ETX>
Response:
<STX>35021096 1<ETX><CR>

5. Error messages during data transfer
If receiving an invalid data protocol from the PC (for example line not existing or letters where there should
be numbers) the counter – provided it is still accessible - will return a corresponding error message. To be
able to do so, at least control character <STX> and identifier must be correct. If not, NE216 is no longer accessible and therefore not in a position to reply any error message to the PC.
In case no reply neither error message is replied on the PC request, it is a fatal error which means control
character <STX> and identifier are missing. Furthermore, PC and NE216 interface parameters are not congruent. However these being correct, the failure is due to hardware or a defect in the data transmission line.
Standard structure in error messages:
<STX> Identifier line status <CAN> error number <ETX> <CR>
Example:
Identifier =35, Line =09 (invalid line), error number =2
<STX>3509R<CAN>2<ETX><CR>
The error message replied will come without „line“ and „status“ information.
Detailed error description:
Error 1: Format error (incorrect <ETX> position. This signal is given in case
the data format was not kept during programming (for example during
parameterization of a limit only 4 digits instead of 5 have been
transferred).)
Error 2: Line (position) not existing or separating line
Error 3: Parameter error (invalid protocol data). Example: Scaling factor not
only comprising numbers but also of other characters not permitted, or
parameter beyond the permitted range.
