Publisher's Description:

Eltima RS232 Data Logger - RS232 Data Logger by Eltima Software is an Open Source application which allows you to redirect all communication data from RS232 compliant serial port device into a text file for further analysis. RS232 Data Logger redirects data from any available serial port (doesn't matter whether it is virtual or real one) and works under Virtual Machine (VMWare). You can gather data from multiple serial ports simultaneously. All data recorded as a text can be further analyzed. For instance, you may parse global positioning data (coordinates) from GPS device connected to your notebook via serial port to track your movement; or you may simply investigate and learn how serial ports work. RS232 Data Logger is able to select the file where to redirect incoming data for each port and specify serial port connection parameters (baudrate, parity, stop bits, flow control, databits). Among other hot features of this Data Logger is real-time counter of the received and stored bytes and the ability to work under Virtual Machines. The utility allows you to disable/enable logging on-the-fly and append incoming data to already existing file. RS232 Data Logger is provided with source code (MFC/C++ VC7.1).

I downloaded the RS232 Data Logger 2.7. I followed the instructions, then rebooted my PC and set the parameters for communication and the data logger worked perfectly! Of particular help was the instant display of data sent or received. This helped me know that I had the communications parameters set correctly with the serial device.

Excellent software.

This is a great product ot works :) but i need a simular open source product written in c#

Excellent product, it worked on first use, no bother. Simple to use/set up.

Used the logger on VMWare and it just worked fine!
Very simple to use.
Thanks for sharing.

It worked very well, I am happy that I have it :)

I uninstalled the program after i found out it was unable to run and grap data from my serial line while i ran a program using the same port.

nice thing and very useful to our undergraduate students
thank you very much

I have a Denver Maxx balance and a YADAP interface and the Eltima data logger. I have been unable to get the three things to work.

Version: 2.7

It's good.
And some further suggestions:
1.update the com port list automatically, there are some usb-to-rs232 devices people used.
2.display rs232 log when user selects a certain com port.

i am not able to log the data from virtual com port with this software.

Await your reply.

I'm looking for software to logging my data.

The tool does what I expect it to. I use it for getting the logged data back to PC from a picaxe microcontroller.

The program is fine for recording the exact output of the serial device without blocking the serial port (which so many other logging applications do), so you can communicate with the device with different software and just "listen" to the traffic with Eltima Data Logger.
A drawback though is that Eltima Data Logger does not put a time stamp on the recordings, which is what I primarily are interested in. That would be great improvement and I would be glad to recommend it and other software by the developers to more people.

Works just as it says.

This was not the type of RS232 application I was looking for. Athough it seems to a useful tool what I required was amethod to control communication between an application and a RS232 serial port. I finally found what I require, an AutoIt script example.

Once I have created the type of application I require, further investigation into your tool will continue.

It does not seem to work with USB to Serial type serial ports. I did not really expect it to.

Christge 2009-03-30 14:28:48 #
Version: 2.7

It worked fine as long as it has exclusive ComPort access. I wanted to log ComPort data between my computer diagnostic software and my car serial port adapter. The logger wouldn't work while the diagnostic software was using the port.

Simply working.

Very friendly to use, works very well (as for my needs). I have nothing to complain about. I recommend it to people who needs rs232 input - > text file program as i did.

Excellent product - easy to use.

No exactly what I was looking for...It works

I'm using this to capture my weather station data during the day.
What I was really after was a small form oprogram that
1. I could minimize ( Can't do that with this program)
2. A program that didnt lock itself to the log file. I wanted to be able to move off the file at midnight and save it as a new name and let the logger just open a new instance of the original log file. ( Can't do that with this program )
Thoughts are my only 2 concerns ! Outside of that I really like it !

Missing feature

The program is excellent overall but It would really be useful to be able to view the flow of data being logged. How about an area to view those characters being logged? And finally, How about a minimize option of tne main window? Even better if we can minimize the program to the control tray. Thanks!!
The task I´m solving with this program is to log data coming from a phose switching system that gives me information about the phone calls traffic in and out.

Eltima logger

This logger is extremely easy to use and does not conflict with any other programs that I run. It produces a simple text file of the NMEA message with no embedded characters. It has no frills, but is a great choice for simple logging.

Good But....

Seems to function well - but we have decided not to use this at this time, we would also require the ability ot acknowledgde the data source being logged ().

RS232 Rev PW

Easy setup, nice clean interface. However,I would like if one could set automatic filename, for example yymmdd.txt

it is simple to use

It is really simple and easy to use. I initially thought I will have a difficult time trying to figure out how to use it. But it is just so simple.

This program is so helpful that we do not need to record the readings manually but it can be easily recorded.

Would hope that your program can help us not only record the values in txt form but also excel or the program is designed to be able to plot a graph at the same time.

Thank you for the program!

Excellent as test and tutorial program

I used it to test my data acquisition hardware. I works fine, I experienced no data loss. The source code is great to help understand the Win32 RS232 API.
In some cases it would be very useful to be able to individually set or reset the DTR and RTS lines.

Rough and ready data capture

Software was good for my preliminary experiments capturing data from a mass flow meter. Output from the meter is continuous serial data so the Eltima data logger software had the limitation that is captures everything. I need to find or write my own logger software that can capture at timed intervals and maybe average data so that I can log a days worth of data and have a manageable file size.

Eltima RS232 data logger feedback

Excellent, easy to use and intuitive. Data captured successfully.
Used to transfer data to a modern PC from obsolete drives in an obsolete machine with only RS232 comms.
