ScriptCommunicator is a scriptable cross-platform data terminal that supports serial port (RS232, USB to serial), UDP, TCP client/server, SPI, I2C, and CAN. All sent and received data can be shown in a console and can be logged in an html and a text log.

In addition to the simple sending and receiving of data, ScriptCommunicator has a QtScript (similar to JavaScript) interface. This script interface has the following features:

  • Scripts can send and receive data with the main interface.
  • In addition to the main interface scripts can create and use their own interfaces (serial port (RS232, USB to serial), UDP, TCP client, TCP server, PCAN, and SPI/I2C).
  • Scripts can use their own GUI (GUI files which have been created with QtDesigner (is included) or QtCreator).
  • Multiple plot windows can be created by scripts (QCustomPlot developed by Emanuel Eichhammer is used)


  • seriel port (RS232, USB to serial)
  • TCP client/server (network proxy support for TCP clients)

  • CAN (PCAN-USB, only on windows)
  • utf8, hexadecimal, decimal, binary and mixed console
  • html and text log
  • script interface (QtScript)->run automated test jobs, automatic device configuration scripts...
  • use ui files (user interface created with QtDesigner (is included) or QtCreator) from script->building test GUIs, control GUIs...
