How to Convert ASCII to Hex

Follow these steps to convert text to hexadecimal.

  1. Get the text that you want to convert to hex.
  2. Use the ASCII table given below to get a decimal number against each character.
  3. Convert text characters into hex by repeating these steps.

Example

Let's convert the "Prepostseo" text to hexadecimal.

  • Check the ASCII table for each character in the text "Prepostseo." We have got all of the following from the ASCII table below.

P = 50, r = 72, e = 65, p = 70, o = 6f, s = 73, t = 74

  • Use these numbers to form a hex string.

Prepostseo = 50 72 65 70 6f 73 74 73 65 6f

You can inverse it to "Prepostseo" using Hex to Text converter.


How to convert character ‘A’ to hex?

  1. Get the ASCII table or refer to the table given below.
  2. Locate the capital 'A' character in the table.
  3. Locate the corresponding character in the Hexadecimal column, which is 41.
  4. So, 'A' is equal to 41 in the hex number system.

How to convert character '0' to hex?

  1. Get the ASCII table or check the table given below.
  2. Identify the '0' character in the table.
  3. Identify the corresponding character in the Hexadecimal column, which is 30.
  4. It means '0' is equal to 30 in the hex number system.

Applications of Hexadecimal

The programmers often use the hexadecimal numbering system to ease binary numbers. There is a linear relation between numbers 2 and 16 since 16 is equal to 2 4.
In other words, one hexadecimal number is equal to four binary numbers. Humans use hexadecimal numbering to simplify and comprehend the binary number system while computers use binary numbers as their base. Hexadecimal numbers are used in the following:

  • Hexadecimal numbers are used to define a location in the memory. Each byte can only be characterized in hexadecimal digits by two hexadecimal digits compared with eight digits in binary.
  • It is used to specify colors in webpages. Two hexadecimal digits mark each primary color, red, green, and blue. #RRGGBB format is used where RR refers to red, GG refers to green, and BB refers to blue.
  • Hexadecimal numbers are also used to specify MAC addresses.There is a total of 12 hexadecimal numbers in the MAC Address. Format of MAC address is usually MMMM-MMSS-SSS or MM:MM:MM:SS:SS:SS. The characters in this format shows the adapter id and serial number.
  • Hexadecimal numbers are also used to show error messages. This is used to describe the location of the error in the memory. For programmers to find and fix bugs, this is very helpful.

Benefits of the Hexadecimal System

There are hundreds of advantages of hexadecimal, and some of those advantages are given below.

  • The number of digits for a given number is normally less than in binary or decimal by using a basis of 16, which provides conciseness. You can use less space to store more information.
  • Converting between hexadecimal and binary numbers is easy and fast. It can be used in only a few digits to write large binary numbers.
  • This makes it easier to learn, write, and grasp the binary numbers because it allows their classification. It is more rational since individuals are used to grouping numbers and items together to understand them better. Furthermore, writing in fewer numbers reduces the chance of mistakes.
