You have the following options:
Remote stand alone operation.
Very low power consumption makes the
Stylitis family of dataloggers suitable for collecting data in
remote, hard to reach locations.
You can leave the datalogger unattended for
months or years, conditioning and recording input signals. Data
may be stored in a removable (PCMCIA) memory card. Periodically,
the memory card will be exchanged with an empty one. The card
containing data is put in the office PC (equipped with a PCMCIA
card drive to accept memory cards). Using the supplied software
one can read the card and convert compressed data to ASCII text
files organized in columns for further processing.
Connection to the datalogger may also be
achieved with a portable PC. In this case, the data are
transferred via the serial port.
To operate the datalogger as described above,
use the free Stylitis Explorer software.
Remote off-line operation
A convenient method of data transfer is
via the cellular GSM network. The supplied Stylitis Explorer software is used to access, program and download
data from remote stations without leaving your office!
If you are not happy with Stylitis
Explorer you may use the Stylitis ActiveX controls to build your own application in Visual
Basic, VC++, LabView, etc.
In addition to storing real-time or
statistically processed data in local storage, Stylitis dataloggers can simultaneously transmit real-time data to a host
computer. This intelligent data acquisition front-end does not
require that a host system is always up and running. Stored data
may be downloaded when communication is convenient. On-line data
are available when needed for supplementary storage, operation
checking, demos, etc.
Connection between the datalogger and the host
may be done using a serial cable, a modem (wired, RF or GSM) or a
LAN. A COM port, a modem or an Ethernet adapter, respectively, is
required on the PC.
Use the Stylitis ActiveX controls to develop your own application in
VBasic, VC++, Labview, Excel, Access, etc.
