Accsense VersaLog data logger products are low cost, multi-channel loggers with a USB or WiFi interface. These stand-alone recorders feature up to 8 channels, depending on model, with versions to log temperature, current, voltage, strain or pulse.
All VersaLog data loggers have a built-in USB port for connection to a PC for configuration and downloading data. USB models have an auxiliary serial port and two programmable alarm outputs which can be configured with low or high limits to activate a relay, switch on a light or audible alarm, or signal a PLC or other device.
New WiFi models incorporate a standard 802.11 b/g/n interface for wireless network connection when externally powered. The optional DSS-2 USB device server allows multiple VersaLog loggers to be connected to a single Ethernet port, allowing remote network access.
The SiteView software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, 8, 10 and can be used to configure the data loggers, retrieve stored data, graph the measurements and save or export the data. It also offers the ability to view real-time data from any connected loggers. A powerful calibration tool can be used to convert the raw sensor output to engineering units using either a simple linear fit or a more complex equation. An alarm management tool allows local notification or an email notification of an alarm condition sensed by a connected logger.

A serial cable must be properly connected between the PC and the data logger. For example, some data loggers have two types of ports, and it is important to use the correct cabling for the one you are connected to. On Campbell Scientific data loggers, there are two types of 9-pin connectors: CS I/O and RS-232. With RS-232, you can either connect a straight-through cable between the RS-232 port on the PC and the RS-232 port on the data logger, or you can use a USB to RS-232 cable. If you are connecting to a CS I/O port, you must also use an RS-232 to CS I/O converter, such as the SC32B Optically Isolated RS-232 Interface.
The baud rate you select in the software must match the baud rate of the data logger serial port. For example, CR200-series dataloggers and CR10X dataloggers are always 9600 baud. CR1000 and similar data loggers can handle baud rates up to 115200. The CR1000 defaults to a baud rate of -115200, which means 115200 with autobaud enabled. The autobaud option tries to adjust the baud rate automatically to match the PC. Although autobaud is reliable at adjusting down the baud rate, it does have trouble adjusting up from 9600 to 115200. So, if someone else connects to your CR1000 at 9600 baud, you may have trouble connecting at 115200. After you successfully connect, you can change the baud rate setting for the serial port on the data logger.
The PakBus address you specified in the setup of the software must match the PakBus address of the data logger. All data loggers with PakBus operating systems have a default PakBus address of 1. If you previously connected successfully with the data logger using the same computer, the setting is likely correct. If you are unsure of the PakBus address of the data logger, you can use the Device Configuration Utility to check the PakBus address of the data logger when it connects.
I believe you are requesting the ability to do a low level IO log in a datalogger. It can be done with CRBasic code, but it is easier to do with a setting on the datalogger instead. The Files Manager in the Advanced settings on the datalogger allows logging traffic on a serial port to a file. There is help provided in the settings editor.
Apologies for exhuming such an old topic. Is it true that Windows 10 (probably 7 and 8 also) expressly forbids direct addressing of the serial ports, and does this affect your particular equipment I have been stymied by this before - requiring ditching of the modern OS in favour of XP, and am now wrestling with a Wacom digitising tablet on a Win 10 system and I think the direct addressing issue has beaten me. Perhaps there is a workaround.
SITE-LOG LPC-1 is a 7-channel current plus 1-channel temperature, battery powered, stand-alone data logger, with storage up to 8 MB of data in non-volatile flash memory. Input current signals can be from sensors, transducers, transmitters or any other common current sources.
SITE-LOG LPCB-1 (high accuracy) is a 7-channel current plus 1-channel temperature, battery powered, stand-alone data logger, with storage up to 8 MB of data in non-volatile flash memory. Input current signals can be from sensors, transducers, transmitters or any other common current sources.
The CR3000 Micrologger supports complex applications with many sensors. It is fast and powerful enough to handle extended eddy-covariance systems with full energy-balance systems. Multiple CR3000s can be configured as a network or units can be deployed individually.
Housed in a portable, self-contained package, the CR3000 Micrologger consists of measurement and control electronics, communication ports, 16-character keyboard, display, power supply, and carrying handle. The integrated display shows 8 lines x 21 characters (64 x 128 pixels).
The on-board operating system includes measurement, processing, and output instructions for programming the data logger. The programming language, CRBasic, uses a BASIC-like syntax. Measurement instructions specific to bridge configurations, voltage outputs, thermocouples, and pulse/frequency signals are included. Processing instructions support algebraic, statistical, and transcendental functions for on-site processing. Output instructions process data over time and control external devices.
With several channel types, the CR3000 is compatible with nearly every available sensor, including thermocouples, SDI-12 sensors, and 4 to 20 mA sensors. A custom ASIC chip expands its pulse count, control port, and serial communications capabilities. The CR3000's I/O ports can be paired as transmit and receive, allowing serial communications with serial sensors and devices.
Synchronizing each data logger to computer time through the data logger support software is the easiest way and will work well for many applications. In LoggerNet an automated clock check may be set up that resynchronizes whenever a user-defined clock deviation is detected. In high-speed applications it may be desirable to attach a GPS device to each data logger and use the GPS instruction to set the data logger clock.

This document is created to show you step by step instructions on how to accomplish this.
PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers. In addition to some network protocols, it is also a very good and lightweight tool to monitor your serial ports. The software can be run directly without running an installer and is easy to use.
To connect to a serial port, select the 'Serial' radio button and enter the serial port number as well as the baud rate. If you do not know the baud rate, no worries, you can change it later on. The most commonly used baud rates are 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400 and 115200 bps.
After setting this information, click 'Open' to open the serial port. If the port is present and not in use by another application, you should see a terminal screen displaying the data that is coming in.
To change the serial settings, click the system menu (the upper left icon in the window caption) and select 'Change Settings...'. Next select 'Serial' to open the serial settings. After changing the baud rate, click 'Apply' to see if it fixes, the problem. If not, repeat this step until you get readable data.
