Step #1) Load the most recent release of EZ-Builder
Step #2) Press the Project tab from the top menu bar of EZ-Builder
Step #3) Press Add Control from the button ribbon bar of EZ-Builder
Step #4) Choose the General category tab
Step #5) Press the Benchmark icon to add the control to your project


Description

For debugging your EZ-B. This will demonstrate the speed of commands, and the reliability of the connection. Use this for two reasons:

1) To verify the speed of your EZ-B connection and computer.

2) To verify the reliability (or diagnose issues) with the connection or EZ-B.

Data Channel Flood Protection

If you load the settings screen of the connection control, there is an option for the EZ-B v4.x/0 and EZ-B v4.x/1 called Data Channel Flood Control. The flood control will add a slight delay between read commands to prevent the TCP data channel to the ez-b to be saturated with commands. This feature only works with the first generation EZ-B, and is ignored on later versions. If you have a first generation EZ-B v4, the bench mark will return READ ADC commands between 4/sec and 70/sec. Where 70 read commands per second is near the highest to be expected on the first generation EZ-B v4. To tweak the data throttle values for optimal performance, increment the Data Channel Flood Protection value by 1 and try the Read ADC again. Repeat this process until you receive the highest number per second. Remember, this value is on a per project basis.
