Technet Data Format

Information on X-RITE Photo units and Technet Data formatTechnet Data Format

Eastman Kodak specifies an ASCII data format for all RS232-C communications between its software applications and any photographic densitometer. All X-Rite photo units support this definition. An Advanced Technet protocol is also specified (see Related Support). Below are listed notes regarding the older 'standard' Technet protocol:

 

ASCII text data is transmitted in one or more fields of the following structure:

 

L###

Where:    
  L A lead identifying character (V, R, G, B)
  ### The measured density - NO decimal point - assumed between 1st & 2nd
    The ASCII carriage return character (Chr$ (13))

 

If multiple fields are transmitted, they are passed in the following order: V, R, G, B

 

L###L###L###L###

Where:    
  L A lead identifying character (V, R, G, B)
  ### The measured density - NO decimal point - assumed between 1st & 2nd
    The ASCII space character
    The ASCII carriage return character (Chr$ (13))
    The ASCII line feed character (Chr$ (10))
