ASTM Host Simulator Tool

Operators Manual

1. Purpose of the ASTM Host Interface Simulator


The ASTM Host Interface Simulator allows to simulate the host communication for all Roche analyzers that are
equipped with an ASTM host protocol.
The tool may simulate the analyzer or the host. It was developed with the programming language Visual Basic 6.0
and requires a 32-bit operating system (Windows 95 or NT).
The tool has instrument-independant features ...
low-level communication
trace recording
messages may be created with a record editor, saved as so-called record files (*.DAT) and sent to the
connected device
error simulation by sending wrong checksums
free timer setting
and instrument specific features ...
the extracted info of received messages is stored in instrument-specific MS ACCESS databases
realtime request mode may be simulated with this database
the meaning of the record fields may be displayed in the lower part of the record editor

2.System Requirements
Hardware:
IBM-compatible computer, capable of running Windows NT, 2000, XP
Software:
32-bit Windows Operating System (NT, 2000, XP)

3. Installation of the Tool


The ASTM Host Interface Simulator is to be installed on the hard disk by the SETUP.EXE routine.
The SETUP routine creates a new directory and copies the program files and library files to the hard disk.
Be sure that no other application is open during setup !

DB Access

This screen allows to take a look at the different database tables which
contain the received data. Test selections and test selection requests can
be generated and sent to the connected device.
There are two options for the database in a pull-down menu available:
Compress DB eliminates holes in the database file and decreases
the file size
Store Column Width stores the actual column width of the
displayed table after a manual adaptation.
Create Report creates result reports, if the result table is displayed

Desktop

The programs desktop language can be selected (german or english)

Communication Test

This option initiates a short [ENQ] - [ACK] - [EOT] sequence for testing
the communication, if the test program is connected to itself.
This test is supported by the STA Compact, it is not supported by the
Elecsys 2010 interface !

the above specified search is repeated

Options
Parser

(only available, if record files are displayed)


if a record file is displayed the text window is divided into
two parts. In the upper part, the record file is displayed, in
the lower part the field information of the selected record is
displayed. If the Parser option is deactivated, the text
window increases to full height.

Instrument Messages

(only visible, if record files are displayed and the program


works as instrument simulator)
All messages that the instrument can send during operation
are offered in a option box. The selected message is
displayed with default values in the text editor window and
can be modified.

Host Messages

(only visible, if record files are displayed and the program


works as host simulator)
All messages that the host sends during operation are
offered in a option box. The selected message is displayed
with default values in the text editor window and can be
modified.
On this screen the test selection default profile can be
displayed, modified and stored in a separate file.

Small/Large Window

with this option, the text editor window can be reduced to


the half height. So it is possible to observe the trace window
on the main screen while the text editor is open. If a record
file is displayed and the small window is selected, the parser
option is disabled

Operators Manual

6. Technical Details
6.1. Record editor rules
The record text file can contain more than one message (a message starts with the Header record, contains several
data records and ends with the Termination record). Each message has to start with a Header record; otherwise it
is not sent.
The time delay between messages can be specified on the Timer Settings screen.
6.2. TCP/IP Communication
Beside the communication via the serial interface RS232 the simulator may also communicate via TCP/IP
network.
The corresponding setting is done on the Options/Interface Settings screen.
Here you select between RS232 and Network interface.
If RS232 is selected, the baud rate, port number, data-, stopbits and parity check may be selected.
If Network is selected, there are three further options:
Device works as ...

TCP/IP Server (the other device needs to be TCP/IP Client


TCP/IP Client (the other device needs to be TCP/IP Server
TCP/IP UDP = User Datagram Protocol (the other device needs the same setting)

According to the above listed options, you have to enter additional settings.
If Server is selected, the local port number needs to be entered. This must be the same number than the remote
port number of the client.
After re-starting the simulator, a dialog is displayed which indicates the network options and the simulator as
server waits for a client to connect before he gives access to the program features.
If Client is selected, the remote port number needs to be entered. This must be the same number than the local
port number of the server.
In addition the servers IP address (format: aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd) must be entered.
After re-starting the simulator, a dialog is displayed which indicates the network options and the simulator as
client needs to be connected to a listening server by pressing the [Connect] buttons.
The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a connectionless protocol. Unlike TCP operations, computers do not
establish a connection. Also, a UDP application can be either a client or a server.
You have to enter the other devices IP address, the local port number (which must be entered as remote port
number at the other device) and the remote port number (which must be entered as local port number at the
other device).
After re-starting the simulator, a dialog is displayed whcih indicates the network options and both devices need
to be connected before you get access to the program features.
When selecting the option 'RS232 <> TCP/IP Conversion' the ASTM Simulator passes messages received via the
RS232 port to the TPC/IP port and vice versa. In this case both setting frames are visible.
