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.

Hi all,

we are facing an issue with our datataker DT80 in downloading some saved data of a schedule configured with the previous version of the software. When I enter the explore data window, the software recognises the quantities with the channels but at the momento of downloading all the data, the software stucks. I don't know if it is a problem of not compatible versions or just a matter

We are using a datataker (Model: DT85 GM Series 4)in our lab to take strain gauges reading. We have another datataker (Model: DT85 GM Series 3) also in our lab in use. When we connected the same strain gauge to both datatakers separately, both showed different readings. The DT85 Series 4 showed it in the ‘6000-7000’ range and the DT85 Series 3 showed it in the ‘10000-11000&rsquo

Hi Team,
I have purchased a DataTaker DT82i to communicate with the flow meter and Temp sensor and to send that data to our IOT gateway.
I was able to configure Internal Tags and see that data in web interface using DEX 2.1.18 for Channel creation.
Able to read those Internal tags as well using Modbus TCP/IP, in PC but when I connected Datalogger to IOT gateway the Modbus status was ok b

I had installed a DT85 series 4, then changed the memory from 128MB to 2GB, and started up the datataker.
After starting up the LCD shifted its messages to the right of the display tell only half of the massege was shown (for example ethernet IP was but 192.168 only appears)

I made a hard reset and "Reset" command, but after the reset the display keeps shifting again

I have recently bought a new DT80W-4 and started using the dEX-2 software for programming and downloading logged data.

I have one schedule running where signals from three load-cells and a thermocouple are recorded. The signals from the load cells are in mV and I convert it to kg by multiplying by a fixed factor.

The first columns in the csv-file become Timestamp and TZ as expec

Recently i notice and read that to be able to see the configuration of your DT80 on the web is to migrate it in DEX2. Does it mean you will not be able to open the web portal since Adobe Flash is already EOL? Besides using DEX2 what other alternative can we use if we want to access the GUI on Web portal as we are accessing the dt80 via internet. Hope for your kind response. Thanks

i have problem when loading a program from a saved file.everytime i load the program,it will alter the calculation output(result) that will cause error when uploading the program to everytime i want to resend the program to datataker,i need to re-do the calculation one by one. hope for a solution for this .thank you

Can anyone please give me an idea about how we connect three wire strain gauges to the data taker and what bridge configuration we should follow? I am using a DT85 model data taker.

If anyone can explain the basic things related to this or provide some useful links, it would be a great help as I am very new to data taker.

Thank You.

Dear Team,
I'm facing to the Flash that is out of date. I can not access to Dex software to configure data taker DT80. Please help to instruct me to configure it.

I've been using a DT85 series 4 for logging several 4:20mA signals, and I'm configuring the DT-85 using DEX-2.
the DT85 had displayed all the signal correctly on its display, however when I tried sending a CSV file using FTP, nothing was sent to the FTP server.

How is the syntax to send the content of the variable via serial?
I tryed these:
