Data Logging in RC Mode

Data Logging in RC Mode was created by benchambers
We have an AX3500, and are using it in RC Mode, with a cable that has been set up for Data Logging. Everything seems, to work, except for the following:

The manual says that there will be 13 two-digit hexadecimal numbers representing the parameters (page 103). On page 83 it says there will only be 12 two-digit hexadecimal numbers. Now, aside from the obvious lack of agreement, once I had communication with the Roboteq board, I discovered that there are actually 14 two digit hexadecimal numbers!

So, now I'm trying to figure out which number means what. What is the additional number, and where in the sequence did it happen to fall?

.. I have the same issue. Could Roboteq please comment.

The motor amps also do not seem to update.

The easiest way to check that the string is working is with roborun. You need to make a cable where the RC channel go to the 15-pin connector and only the Rx port of the COM on the pc connected (do not connect the PC Tx to the controller Rx).

Then reset the controller so that it starts in RC mode and output the string. You should see the boxes and charts updating in the Run tab.

Regarding the string composition, the parameters that are sent are

: = delimiter
c1 = command 1
c2 = command 2
p1 = power level 1
p2 = power level 2
i1 = analog 1
i2 = analog 2
a1 = amps1
a2 = amps2
t1 = temp1
t2 = temp2
b1 = main battery volt
b2 = internal volt
e1 = encoder 1
e2 = encoder 2
cr = cariage return

in controllers that do not have the encoder module, e1 and e2 are not sent.
