Hello, I am looking for the latest version of software for the DT90. Is anyone able to provide a link or point me in the right direction ?

We have a DT51 we dusted off. The problem I have is that when you startup the logger there are some default scans, spans and switch settings, if I delete the scans and write new scan, when I restart the logger or cycle the power, the logger defaults back to the "built-in" scan and switches.

Is there a setting or switch where i can stop this from happening?

Hi there,

The plan is to use a DT85 with a SMSX modem as a method of connection. Unfortunately I am having difficulty in getting a this to work. I am using sim cards where the carrier is Vodaphone, but the provider is BT.

I have a terminating Data Number, (as far as I know) - I have two different numbers for the Sim, one regular number to call the phone & one data line.

I am tr

Hi Roger,
I have an installation with an S3 DT50 and a SMSX modem. The customer cannot always dial into the system. Every so often (could be once a week could be once a month) the comms link between the logger and the smsx unit seems to go awol.

The only remedy seems to be to power down and up again the SMSX and to plug in a laptop to DT50 and try to connect a few times. The connection d

Hi there,

I'm going through the manual "Using the SMSX modem with DT800 range of dataTaker data loggers." When entering and executing the following:

SINGLEPUSH BEGIN RX DELAY=2000 REFT(=1CV,NR) DO{[/h/Z/r/e/m]} DO"ET-SMS=0|Logger Temp ?1F1 DegC|P0|30^M" END G
I should be able to send "X" to the logger, and get some data in return. The only thing I get is:

While recording CAN SPN data on a Freightliner Cascadia J1939 bus I get expected reading for a while, then the SPN reads 0xFF for a few frames.

After it will read normal for a while then read 0xFF. Does anyone know what causes this? I use the same equipment and program on a Mack truck and the data reads normal all the time.

Hi Roger,

I have upgraded the firmware of DT81 Series 2 (Sr. No. 086321) to latest version. But when connected to PC, the PC is detecting as USB Serial Converter unlike new DT82E when connected, opens the Explorer and we can do programming using dEX software.

Please give us your inputs to rectify this problem.

We just bought a DT80M and CANGate. To test the CANGate, I put together a one-row schedule in Delogger and downloaded it to the logger.

Unfortunately, Delogger's "Errors" window keeps saying "Serial sensor scan error at control position 13". The RS232 Rx & Tx lights do blink on the CANGate, so something is happening. And while the configured message is not on the CAN bus (my CAN msgs are

Dear Sir ,

We have a CANgate and a DT82E. We connect the both with a serial cable (RS232). We take the protocol ISO14230 with a speed of 500 (for the serial cable connection, we keep the default parameter).

When we download the program, there are some error in the code. We didn't change the code, it is the default code of DeLogger5. What is the problem? Do we change the code of the program? Are there s

I am not good at doing the text versions of the program. I want to write a program for 2 units of gill ultrasonic windmaster anemometer, both of them will be using the serial ports.

For one of the ports I can see there is provision on the front panel and the second one as suggested by the manual host ports can be used. My question is with the program builder how do I do this?

Hi Roger,

I download session from database and I get 6 parameters in analyse window. By using analyse window i want to draw 2-D line chart between any 2 parameters. (one parameter as X-axis and other parameter as Y-axis).

How can I do it ? Something similar to Microsoft Excel in which one can make data sheet and chart sheet. One can select any two parameters of datasheet and can draw a

Hopefully this one is really easy & it is me being a numpty... . I am using DeLogger Pro V5 to connect to a DT85 via an SMSX modem link.

The problem I am having is that the returned data, (in csv file), no longer has the column headers attached to it... that is to say that the whole of row 1 in the spreadsheet is blank. I thought this would be something silly like a switch not

Hi Roger,

Can I see datataker values directly on Delogger Analyse Window.(if my sample time period is 10 seconds, than i would like to see update of each value in to Delogger analyse window automatically and according to that change in chart).

Is there any documentation anywhere on the operation and functionality of the OPC server? My OPC client (LabView) crashes whenever I try to browse the items published by the server.

Also, what is the maximum update rate possible. If I set a group rate at <1000msec, I get the message that the sever has forced this to 1000msec.

Hello there.

I'm trying to setup the DeLogger OPC server (on a WinXP machine) following the instructions in the help file.

However, when I get to step 3 (registering the OPC server DLL) I get the following error: "DllRegisterServer in C:\Program Files\Datataker\DeLogger\opc server\deLoggerOPCServer.dll failed. Return code was: 0x80029c4a"

Can anyone help?
