How do I null terminate a Port sensor command

I'd like to monitor uptime of a Windows process by sending a TCP command and checking for a valid response. My issue is that the process requires commands strings to be null (ASCII 0) terminated. Is there a way of doing this in PRTG using the standard Port sensor? Maybe an escaped character in the sensor command parameter?

command port prtg uptime

Sure - it could - but am I correct in thinking that will only tell me that that process is in memory? I want to check that it is responsive to requests (just for information - the process is a graphics renderer that is controlled over a TCP port)
