What Is an MS2 Connector?
An MS2 connector is used to supply power to an iSIC Data Logger. It has two openings – one for power and the other for ground. An MS2 connector can be found on the A11 float charger (power adapter) and the solar panels of iSIC MAST systems. The port which connects the MS2 connector […]
What is the Difference Between Active FTP and Passive FTP?
The Basics FTP is a TCP based service exclusively. There is no UDP component to FTP. FTP is an unusual service in that it utilizes two ports, a ‘data’ port and a ‘command’ port (also known as the control port). Traditionally these are port 21 for the command port and port 20 for the data […]
How do I Change the iSIC Clock to Match a Different Time Zone?
Changing the data logger clock to match a different time zone is done by editing the Time Zone offset value and then syncing the logger’s clock to the PC clock. Open iChart with the current project file Click Edit | Preferences Under the Time section enter the appropriate number of seconds in the Time Zone offset box. Click OK Click on […]
How do you Convert from Molarity (M) to Parts Per Million (ppm) and mg/L?
The molarity of a solution is the number of moles of solute per liter of solution. The molar mass of any particle (atom, molecule, formula, or ion) is the sum of the average atomic masses of all atoms forming that particle. This is also known as molecular weight. The molar mass of an atom is […]
How do I Configure the Tritech Micron EchoSounder DST to be Compatible with an iSIC Data Logger?

Upon ordering the Tritech Micron EchoSounder DST, Tritech will request a desired communication configuration. Information for determining the best configuration for use with a NexSens monitoring system is below. Communication: RS-232 or RS-485. […]
How can I Fix the Differential Analog Voltage when Voltmeter and iChart Measurements do not Match?
The common mode voltage range that the iSIC data logger can handle is 0-2.5V. A differential voltage, even though the difference is within the range of 0-2.5V, still may have individual voltages less than 0V or exceeding 2.5V. In this case, the signal is cut off at 0V or 2.5V which causes a faulty reading. […]
What Kind of Charger do I use to Charge an iSIC Battery?
The 12V DC (direct current) batteries used on NexSens iSIC data loggers can be charged in two ways: online or offline. It will be necessary to decide which is most appropriate for the desired application. The necessary charger type can then be determined. Online Charging: If it is essential for the iSIC to always remain powered, […]
If the Green LED in the iSIC Data Logger is off, is it Powered Correctly?
The LED only flashes when the iSIC is booting up and does not stay on all the time in order to conserve battery power. The LED will flash immediately upon connecting the battery but only for 15-20 seconds. REV: 13G29
Why Does the micro-T Software Registration Key not Work on any Other Computer?
Serial numbers for micro-T software are generated based on a signature unique to each computer and user. The registration key is then generated based on that serial number. The serial number and registration key must match for the software to work. Since signatures for a lab computer and an office computer are different, one registration […]
