.SYNOPSIS
Listens to and read data from a serial port (e.g. COM port)
.DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this script is to keep listening and read data from a serial port.
All the data captured will be displayed and log into a file.
.EXAMPLE
./SerialPortReader.ps1
.EXAMPLE
./SerialPortReader.ps1 -PortName COM3 -BaudRate 9600
.EXAMPLE
./SerialPortReader.ps1 -PortName COM3 -BaudRate 9600 -Parity None -DataBits 8 -StopBits One -Handshake None -OutputFile ".\output1.log" -ReadInterval 1000

I have an Error in Line 201
$getTimestamp = Get-Date -Format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff

Results in PS:
Cannot convert value "HH:mm:ss.fff" to type "System.DateTime"

Fix (use " in Format-String):
$getTimestamp = Get-Date -Format "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff"
