DL1 MK3 - Read from second serial port?

Postby knate » Mon Apr 13, 2015 12:23 am

I plan to hook up an LED bar graph with a microcontroller using the serial output of the DL1. I got it working, but I would also like to use my DASH3 at the same time. I built a cable according to the pinout given in the Knowledge Base, but it appears serial 2 is not sending data.

While looking through configuration software, I found some options under serial like 'duplicate output' which are not mentioned in the Knowledge Base.

1. Is it possible to get the serial stream on the 2nd port also?
2. What is the 'Duplicate output' checkbox for under Output Serial Data in the DL1 MK3 config software ?

After digging through the software, I found an 'enable' checkbox for serial 2. It appears this is locked, so I will just wire my cable to output port 1 to both leads.
