    Hi,
    I came across this software via a battery charger site and it looks like it will be what I need to record and log the data from our Power meter. It outputs ASCII data @9600,8,N,1 every few seconds with a "END" statement at the end of each transmission. How do I configure Logview to read the port and generate charts etc. The online help is all in German even though I did an English install.
    This is what an ASCII poll looks like:
    V 1N 011.970E+0
    A 1N 000.522E+0
    W 1N 0006.25E+0
    HzV1O 888888.E+0,W 1N 0006.25E+0
    END

    This is how it looks in HEX:
    56 20
    20 31 4E 20 20 30 31 31 2E 39 36 38 45 2B 30 0A
    41 20 20 31 4E 20 20 30 30 30 2E 35 32 32 45 2B
    30 0A 57 20 20 31 4E 20 20 30 30 30 36 2E 32 35
    45 2B 30 0A 48 7A 56 31 4F 20 20 38 38 38 38 38
    38 2E 45 2B 30 2C 57 20 20 31 4E 20 20 30 30 30
    36 2E 32 35 45 2B 30 0A 45 4E 44 0A


    I have download LogView version 2 (Windows XP machine) and tried looking for the OpenFormat but I cannot find any reference to Openformat.INI etc.

    Ideas?

    Kind regards,
    Neil.

    Hi Neil,

    this will not work with OpenFormat. OpenFormat is a defined data Format you can use in your own applications. It´s not designed to adapt data formats like the one you Show us here.
    If you like to use that device with LogView Studio you Need a special DLL from us which decodes the data.

    I took a look at the vendor site and was astonished that there are a lot of other data formats the device can send.
    Where did you get the data from? Did you capture it or is it from the Manual?

    btw. Here you will find the Manual:
    https://wiki.engr.illinois.edu/download/attachments/34177729/WT210.pdf
    Chapter 11 give Details about Serial communication.
