ANNEXURE The following data structure protocol is used for transmitting data between the data loggers. DATA PROTOCOL When the data logger is sending a data packet then the following protocol is used. IDENTIFIER –1 (Byte 1) AAH IDENTIFIER –2 (Byte 2) 55H DATA PACKET 12 BYTES END IDENTIFIER BBH
Fourth byte in the data packet will be validation byte, which will be CRC of byte 1 to byte 12 in the data packet (excluding 4th byte in the packet). The structure of 12bytes is as follows: Byte 1 Byte 2 Byte 3 Byte 4 Byte 5 Byte 6 Byte 7 Byte 8 Byte 9 Byte 10 Byte 11 Byte 12 Data Logger ID Data Sequence Numbers Sequence Numbers Validation byte (CRC 16) Time Time Time Time Record Id Input number Input number Status/ Value
If digital input status is data then record Id will be 00 and if analog channel voltage is the data then record Id will be 01. Status of digital signal will be all FF if relay is up and 00 if relay is down. The validation byte in data packet protocol is verified and if found valid then the data logger which has received the packet will acknowledge by sending the protocol shown below. DATA ACKNOWLEDGEMENT PROTOCOL: IDENTIFIER –1 IDENTIFIER –2 ACKNOWLEDGE (Byte 1) (Byte 2) PACKET AAH 33H 12 BYTES A single acknowledgement is sent for a three packets. Byte 1 and byte 2 in acknowledge packet will be fixed to 00. Byte 3 to byte 5 in acknowledgement packet is acknowledgement related to

data packet 1.Byte 3 to Byte 5 in acknowledgement packet will be byte 1 to byte 3 of the data packet 1. Byte 6 to byte 8 in acknowledgement packet will be acknowledgement related to data packet 2. Byte 6 to Byte 8 in acknowledgement packet will be byte 1 to byte 3 of the data packet 2. Byte 9 to byte 11 in acknowledgement packet will be acknowledgement related to data packet 3. Byte 9 to Byte 11 in acknowledgement packet will be byte 1 to byte 3 of the data packet 3. Last byte in the acknowledge packet is validation byte. The validation byte is set such that the sum of bytes (from Byte 1 to Byte 11) in acknowledge packet and validation byte itself will be equal to zero. If only one packet is received then remaining bytes in acknowledge packet (related to other two data packets) will be filled with 00H. The following are command code protocols from CMU to the data logger. BYTE NAME IDENTIFIER- 1 IDENTIFIER- 2 REC LENGTH COMMAND CODE FROM TO DATA (OPTIONAL) CHECK SUM • • • NUMBER OF THE BYTE (Byte-1) (Byte-2) (Byte-3, 4) (Byte-5) (Byte-6) (Byte-7) (Byte-8) (Byte-9, 10) BYTE SIGNIFICANCE AAH CCH No. OF BYTES FROM COMMAND CODE TO VALIDATION BYTE GIVEN IN THE TABLE BELOW COMPUTER DATALOGGER NUMBER NUMBER OF BYTES DEPENDS ON COMMAND CODE. VALIDATION BYTE.
The validation byte is sum of all bytes from Record length to Data (what ever available). Record length is number of bytes from Command code to check sum. The MSB of the sum is will be last but one byte and LSB will be the last byte. The acknowledge command code is sent from the data logger if the on receiving the command from CMU. Data may or may not be available depending upon the commanding sent from the CMU. The table below will give detailed explanation.
