HEX code is used through out the IC world. Use of it is done mostly from what I can tell ( as I am not an engineer) at a very low level in the chips and electronic parts world. I do not need to know any of this stuff other than I need to learn how to get it off each temp probe I am using. To me it is nothing more than an address of the individual temp probe and tells my sketches which probe can be found where in the system.
Here is what it looks like:
0x28, 0xED, 0xED, 0xBB, 0x02, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01
