About Advanced Serial Data Logger

Advanced Serial Data Logger inputs RS232 data directly into file, Excel, Access, or any Windows application. Advanced Serial Data Logger provides real-time data collection from any serial device or instrument. Send and receive RS232 data across an RS232 port or RS485 port with hardware converter.


Advanced Serial Data Logger captures serial data, custom tailors it to your needs, then extract bits of data from data packets and transfers the data to any Windows or DOS application - either by sending keystrokes to the application's window, sending the data through DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) conversations, ODBC, OLE.


Key features of Advanced Serial Data Logger are:


variable data receive;

received data output without any changes to file;

variable format file forming setting (on time, data, size, etc.);

connection parameters flexible setting (baud rate, data bits, etc.);

data flow hardware and software control;

work with RS-485 protocol;

work in spy (sniffer) mode;

auto program restart in showed time;

program message logging;

advanced data parser that allows you to parse, filter and format more complex data from more sophisticated devices;

data export to any database, for which is ODBC-driver (MS SQL, Oracle, MS Access, MS Excel, dBase and others). On the base of received data, you can spy calls, call's length, calling number, etc. After data transmit to any "office" data base (MS Excel, MS Access) you can build a report of any difficulty without the help of professionals.

Advanced Serial Data Logger can run as DDE server and can export received data;

Advanced Serial Data Logger can use the direct connection (use OLE) to Microsoft Excel and write data directly to rows or columns;

you can also define format expressions that allow you to do things like force a specific number of decimal places in numeric values or force data to contain an exact number or sequence of characters.

plug-in modules connection, extending program capabilities.

It supports various operating systems. The logger runs on all versions starting from Windows 2000, including 32 and 64-bit systems.


Advanced Serial Data Logger also transmits requests or commands out the serial port to control or query your instruments directly from Advanced Serial Data Logger over ASCII or MODBUS protocol. Think of Advanced Serial Data Logger as a fully customizable serial I/O device driver.


Advanced Serial Data Logger has a simple, menu-driven step by step set-up. Programming is not required to configure the software to collect data from and control most serial devices.


Advanced Serial Data Logger also is a Windows 2000+ service that records all data received on a serial port to a file on a disk or to other targets. It was originally designed to record telephone traffic data from a phone system (PBX) for later analysis. However, Advanced Serial Data Logger is generic enough to be useful whenever one-way serial traffic needs to be recorded.


Advanced Serial Data Logger has the capability to run multiple instances simultaneously so that multiple ports can be logged.


Unlike most other serial logging applications, Advanced Serial Data Logger runs as a service so that it starts as soon as the operating system starts and doesn't require a user to log in and run it. It will continue to run even as a user logon and logoff the workstation.


It is extremely easy to use! The configuration process is fully menu-driven and has complete, context-sensitive, online help. You can easily customize all input to your exact specifications. Once you see how easy it is to use Advanced Serial Data Logger, you will never again take data readings by hand!
