The default header character is the STX (0x02) character. That can be changed with the Toshiba TEC Header Character parameters listed below.
  • Page 50: Toshiba Tec Header Character

    3 - 22 LI2208 Product Reference Guide Toshiba TEC Header Character This single byte option specifies the header character prefixed onto the decoded data before transmission. The default header character is the STX (0x02) character. Note that it is NOT POSSIBLE to use the NULL character (0x00) as the prefix as this is the default value and indicates that an STX must be used.
  • Page 51: Toshiba Tec Terminator Character

    USB INTERFACE 3 - 23 Toshiba TEC Terminator Character This two byte option specifies the terminator character(s) appended onto the decoded data before transmission. The default terminator character is the ETX (0x03) character.
