RS-232 Data Logger

The Dogcatcher 2 RS-232 data logger is available with either a DB9 connector or with a 12 contact terminal block. Users have the option of powering the Dogcatcher 2 through the DB9 connector. The terminal block makes for easy hookup to the RS-232 signals, status, and a file close switch.

The Dogcatcher 2 captures RS-232 data at user selectable baud rates. Lower baud rates allow data logging from legacy systems and many newer GPS systems. Higher baud rates allow more data collection with readily available hardware.

User settings are conveyed to the Dogcatcher 2 through an optional configuration file. The file is read from the USB stick upon stick insertion. The user may opt to save custom settings to data logger flash.
