  2. Drag the KNX integration object from the navigation panel to the display panel, and then click the Hardware tab.
  3. Click Edit, and then click the browse button to open the Vendor Configuration Data parameter list. In the Modify List dialog box:

  4. Click OK to save your changes, close the dialog box, and then click Save on the Hardware tab to save the KNX integration object. Diagnostic mode begins.
  5. Capture data for approximately ten minutes, then disable diagnostic mode by again opening the Vendor Configuration Data parameter list. Set parameter 1 to N and save the change.
  6. Remove the flash drive from the USB port.
  7. Review the log file by using a text editor. The log file includes all the information related to the integration and communication traffic in hexadecimal format.
    Note: The diagnostic capture file is stored to the flash drive. The name of the text file is: KNXDriver‑<year><month><day>T<hour><minute><second>.log. For example, KNXDriver-20181004T144500.log.
