Spinel - Free universal communication protocol

Free universal communication protocol

Communication protocol called spinel was developed and launched based on our extensive experience with data communications based on other industrial protocols. The target was to accomplish mutual intercompatibility of our devices - from those very simple to those more than complicated.

Spinel was designed in such a way we could enhance and extend it as we see fit without losing the compatibility of our older devices.

Protocol features:

  • Easy implementation to all common single chip processors, PCs and programmable logic controllers.
  • Mutual compatibility of various devices communicating via Spinel protocol.
  • Binary and ASCII communication modes.
  • Easy device development, spinel is very well documented, we have Spinel terminal available for Windows OS. This terminal is constantly being enhanced and worked on.
  • Easy extendibility for own specific device.

Spinel modes are referred to as Spinel formats where each format has its designated number. Numbers 0 - 96 are designated for ASCII coding, numbers 97 - 255 are binary. Each device can support more Spinel Formats or it can have its own specific format. Data are transferred in packets with defined start and end sequences.
