RS232 Serial Logger System
Uses inexpensive Android tablets and phones to record RS232 text type data.

Need to record text type serial data from machines, measuring instruments, alarm systems or DOS based PCs?

Please consider Model TS Text Streamer with an Android device.



Unlike other serial recorders, this system displays the data while recording. Also
you may explore many emerging opportunities to share the recorded data by
internet access of the file. The Model TS Text Streamer hardware unit inputs
RS232 serial text data from your machine, measuring instrument, alarm system,
or DOS based PC and streams the text data to a Android device where it is
displayed and recorded using the Android app supplied by Photologic Ltd.
 Record on a one time temporary basis, or on a full time permanent basis.
  Seeing the data being received on the Android screen gives you
assurance it is recording.
Tap into a live system and record in the background. Record through walls, containers and obstacles
from another location where it is more friendly.


Once the Android has the log data in its file memory, then the user may use a
resident file explorer on the Android device such as Astro or ES Explorer to
view, edit and manage the file data.
The user may move the file off the Android device by several methods: Attach USB cable between PC and Android device (PC sees disk Drive) Email the file Use a file sharing application where PC can access it using WiFi network.
