Using the device with sigrok

The device is supported in Send Mode using a RS232 interface by the driver gmc-mh-1x-2x-rs232 (actually this should work, but with Matthias' test device it did not, so it's untested). Set the multimeter to use the communication adaptor RS232.

The multimeter is also supported in bidirectional mode using a BD232 or SI232-II interface by the driver gmc-mh-2x-bd232. Set the multimeter to use the communication adaptor BD232.

The device might be not detected by the driver if it is in a mode where it sends data rarely, either with a huge send interval or with a measurement function that delivers a very low data rate, e.g. temperature measurements with K type sensor. Then it should be set to a mode with higher data rate during the initialisation of the driver.

Event count mq V, unit V, mqflags AC,RMS,REL To activate, switch to voltage AC, press yellow button twice. Press up to 4 times to cycle parameters, press long to stop. See manual. Not useful remotely because the voltage measurement value is sent, not the counter.
Stop Watch 100 ns (Time data) Max. 100 Min. Press AUTO for start/stop, DATA for reset. Not useful remotely because the stop watch delivers only zeros.
Data Hold mqflags += HOLD Disabled while IR interface is active on  Matthias' test device.
MIN mqflags += MIN Influences only display, via IR flag is set, but actual current value is delivered.
MAX mqflags += MAX Influences only display, via IR flag is set, but actual current value is delivered.

The Accuracy row was simplified, see manual for exact specs. If the value contains three values, the middle value is % or range.

The column "sigrok result" contains in short form what the driver generates for the resp. data type.
