Serial Debugging

Serial Debugging can be used as a diagnostic tool for advanced troubleshooting of the MULTI-Module.

Serial debugging is only practical with external MULTI-Modules.

Step 1: Upload a serial debugging firmware build to your MULTI-Module.

If you disconnect the USB-to-serial adapter from the computer you must close and re-open the serial monitor.

If you use Flash Multi to upload the debugging firmware to your module, the application will ensure that the firmware you are upload matches what your module requires.

Step 2: Run Flash Multi (see the Firmware Update Methods page) and open the Serial Monitor.

Step 3: Read the output, copy and paste, or save it to a file
