Boot Time
cmdBridge boots and is ready to start work in just a few seconds.  It would have booted, and be prepared to go by the time you have read this sentence.

Introduced Latency
cmdBridge processes data very quickly.  There is a system latency of around 50 milliseconds (0.050 seconds).

Configuration file language
The configuration file provides the data needed for translations to happen.  It also permits the setting of variables so that you can create internal state machines.  You can use these variables to alter the translations' behaviour, supplying the correct feedback to a control system and ensuring the user interface is updated as expected.

Passthrough Mode
Command and reply data is passed through unchanged, enabling physical interface translation without altering the content of the data.

Translation Mode
Activates the translation engine so that cmdBridge actively re-writes the commands and replies according to the loaded translation configuration.

Monitor Mode
Provides passive real-time data monitoring as it passes through cmdBridge, regardless of the physical interface.  Data is displayed via the console port in hex and, if printable, in ASCII.

Capture Mode
When in passthrough mode, cmdBridge can record the data passing through.  Thereby automatically creating a snapshot of the working system, storing commands and associated replies into a pre-formatted configuration file.  Once complete, you may save the data to the USB memory stick and pre-formatted it as a translation file.

Multiple internal memory slots to hold translation configuration.  No need to leave a USB memory stick connected for deployment.

Status LEDs
Status LEDs indicate the various modes when data is received or transmitted and if there is a fault.  The full details are in the user manual.
The brightness of the status LEDs is adjustable to suit the deployment environment.
