Monitor and Log Any Serial Data
Luckily, with Advanced Serial Data Logger you don't have to spend hours anymore tracing every single bit of data transferred via RS232 or RS485, or trying to import that data to Excel or other application. This RS232 logger tool receives data via a serial port from any device connected to it in real time and automatically transfers these data to other programs or to a database.
Our RS-232 Data Logger works absolutely transparently, without a user intervention. It receives information from a RS232 port device, processes it, splits the flow to individual data blocks and logs them to a database, or sends them via DDE or OLE technologies to any application of your choice. Moreover, it can also handle the data anyway you want - filter, process, format - the scope of applications is only limited with your imagination. And that's all done completely automatically!
As the name suggests, Advanced Serial Data Logger is an RS232 data logger in the first hand. Each and every step of the process is thoroughly recorded, so it is not a problem anymore to locate and eliminate any possible problems, or monitor emergency alerts. You can create a plain log file, or format it by date, size or data type. Advanced Serial Data Logger can also work as a sniffer capturing and logging all information circulating between serial port devices and the computer.
