As promised, this is the new version of dEX 2.0. It is a few days late due to some unforeseen circumstances.

You can check the user manual, the release notes, and known issues within the software. After you install the software click the Application menu to access those documents.

Please find the installer download link

I am having an issue where the DT85M occasionally stops logging and the commands stop working. When I try to send commands I get a "Permission Denied" response, even though I am logged in as an admin.
I am getting a lot of E9, E10 and E12 errors. From a previous forum post it looks like it could be caused by commands leaked through the network. However, I have commands password prote

I use a DT82i with one device connected on rs232 host port. I retrieve the data frame from this device by decoding on a manual channel. Some values are sometimes negative due to the background measurement. I record the average of these values on CV every 10 min. I would like eject the neg values, how may I proceed ?
Thank you

There is no session time window for ethernet connections. Is it possible to wake up the datalogger for certain time windows, in order to access it remotely over ethernet? We have a battery powered site with a radio link. The datalogger is connected to the radio modem over ethernet. In order to safe power, the datalogger stays in a low power mode and wakes up every day once to do measurements and

I have been trying to connect a DT85 series 3 logger to a windows 10 laptop for over a month, and am still having the same issues. Even with the most up-to-date deX2 and DT-USB software, my laptop is not recognising the logger when it is connected, and therefore, isn't opening the browser or letting me access any data.

It has been suggested that a firmware update (from 9.18

Is there a way to turn HOST_PORT (2Serial) on and off within JOB?
I tried this procedure:





I've got a DT85 Series 2 with the latest 9.22 firmware and am configuring it with dEX-2 v2.1.25 but when I have it reading a couple of voltage channels I'm hearing internal relays clicking each time, is this normal? Although the expected values are correct, the noise is annoying. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

If its relevant, I'm making readings from pins 2 & 3 from the 4-pin connect

I have a wireless load cell from Straightpoint and the output is RS485. I would like to bring this into a DT80 series 2 but am having trouble. I assume this would be done as a Modbus input? I also need to know what syntax I need to use to poll the device to get the data out of it?
If anyone has any experiance with setting this connection up it would be greatly appreciated.

I have suddenly encountered problems with the readings from our DT85G. The temperatures readings we get is 327.7 degC, or OverRange.
When I run a test I get the following report below.
The Shunt(100R) gives a value of 0.0 Ohm.
I now wonder if and how this can be repaired and if a lightning strike could have cause this error?

Best regards

Hello fellow data taker users.

This is my first post, so hopefully I can find some answers to my question.

I have multiple datataker DT85's + CEMs being used for a laboratory.

Since upgrading to the DEX v2.0 software I am currently having numerous issues, the main one being able to quickly view which DT is recording. I currently have to check by using the command function to see if th
