The NexSens iSIC supports direct connect communication between a remote monitoring site and a computer base station. It is the most desirable system for a monitoring site that is under 250ft away from the monitoring station, and where a cable can easily run between the two, or if the data logger will run ‘stand alone’ and be periodically visited to upload data.
Shown below is an example site:
The above system consists of the following components:
1. PC running iChart Software
2. A60-A64 RS-232 Direct Connect Cable
3. iSIC Data logger
4. A22 20-Watt Solar Panel
A computer running iChart software will have a configuration file, called an ICR on it. This file is created in iChart and holds information such as which data loggers are used, and which sensors
are connected to that data logger. With this ICR file data can be uploaded and processed from the data logger.
