Decoding Notes

Data is timetagged when the header of a data message is received, i.e. "[01" for 'Snelpeilbericht' format, or "$" for  'Geselecteerde Data' format.

Tide values are multiplied by 0.01 to convert from cm to meters.

'Snelpeilbericht' channel strings include a checksum character: 128 - ( sum six chars % 128 ). Example.

CheckSum "01+068" is 48+49+43+48+54+56 = 298%128 = 42-128 = -86; 86 = 'V'.

Drivers IO Notes

Command line parameter "RAW" will decode 'Snelpeilbericht' data messages and "SEL" will decode 'Geselecteerde Data' messages.

"NOCS" will not check the checksum in 'Snelpeilbericht' channels.
