About Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger

Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger inputs TCP/IP data directly into file, Excel, Access, database or any Windows application. Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger provides real-time data collection from any device or instrument. Send and receive serial data across the Internet or network connection.


Advanced TCP/IP 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, by passing the data through DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) conversations, ODBC, OLE.


Key features of Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger are:


capability to log multiple ports at the same time.

can work as a server or a client.

variable data receive.

received data output without any changes to a file.

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

advanced data parsers that allows you to parse, filter and format your source data;

data export to any ODBC-compatible database (MS SQL, Oracle, MS Access, MS Excel, dBase and others).

Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger can run as DDE or OPC server and can export all received data.

Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger can use direct connection (use OLE) to Microsoft Excel and write data  directly to rows or columns.

program messages logging.

auto program restart in showed time.

simple, menu-driven step by step set-up - programming is not required to configure the software to collect data.

many plug-in modules that extending program features.

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


Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger also transmits requests or commands over a network connection to control or query your instruments directly from Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger over ASCII or MODBUS protocol over TCP/IP.


Unlike most other serial logging applications, Advanced TCP/IP 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 TCP/IP Data Logger, you will never again take data readings by hand!


Typical usage


A typical application for Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger is to log data from one or more Terminal Servers to disk. A Terminal Server is a device that allows RS232 or RS485 serial devices to be connected directly to an Ethernet network. Terminal Servers typically have an Ethernet connector and one or more RS232 or RS485 ports and they use the TCP/IP network protocol by sending the data that is transmitted through the RS232 or RS485 serial port to a TCP/IP port. Each Terminal Server would have its own IP address and all serial data would be sent through a specific TCP/IP port number.


Another typical application is remote access to an RS232 or RS485 controlled technology. I/O controller is an ideal device if you need remote digital I/O signalizations (Ethernet input, Ethernet output), remote relay control, server accessible remote inputs together with a RS-232 or RS-485 bus for a bar code reader, display, etc..


Applications examples


Remote control of technology over an RS-232 and RS-485 bus;

Remote control of displays and signaling;

Remote reading of PIR sensors, door contacts and security systems;

Remote relay control;

Industrial I/O;

Card readers, RFID readers;

Sales machines;

Security alarms;

Attendance systems;

UPS control and logging;

Bar code readers.


Therefore you can connect all your remote serial devices to one industrial server and collect all data to one place!
