The Message Monitor extracts specially tagged text from the serial stream. It lets you pull out logs, specific data or messages from all the other serial data. Using Channels, you can setup several different windows and send different text to each one. For example, you might have a debug channel and a data log channel.
It talks! Using our Arduino library (see below) or raw Message Monitor commands, messages sent to MegunoLink can be spoken to you.
Sending Data from an Arduino to the Message Monitor
We’ve created a library for Arduino to make it easy to send data to the Message Monitor. After you install the Arduino library:
#include "MegunoLink.h"to the top of your Arduino program
- Create a
Sendto send values, or
End()to send chunks of text
This simple example sends the current voltage on analog channel 0 to a Message Monitor every 2 s.
