Applications

  • Data recording from peripherals such as printers, terminals, keyboards, mice, card readers
  • Reverse-engineering of data exchange protocols
  • Backups of sensitive data from devices like Points-of-Sale, barcode scanners, card readers
  • Data logging from sensors: temperature, pressure, voltage etc.

AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module

Data logging made simple

AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module - Data logging made simple

The AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module is a compact asynchronous serial logger, capable of recording RS-485 data streams from devices like printers, terminals, keyboards, mice, barcode scanners etc. Connect the device either to a single serial source, or in-line on a serial bus. Connect 5V DC power using the side USB-B connector. The AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module will immediately start logging all data available on the bus, both upstream and downstream (RX and TX). No software or drivers are required.

AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module - Data logging made simple

Easy access

All AirDrive devices act as Wi-Fi hotspots. You can connect to them with any Wi-Fi device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop without even touching the device! The AirDrive device will then present a webpage with the data log and configuration options. No additional software or drivers necessary.

AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module - Quick configuration

Quick configuration

Configuring the AirDrive Serial Logger is quick and simple. The only parameters that need to be set are the serial bus characteristics, such as the baudrate, bit count, parity and stop bits. This can be done in less than a minute through the configuration webpage.

The Pro version advantage

The Pro version adds a powerful set of features centered around the capability to act both as a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a Wi-Fi device with Internet connectivity. This unleashes a broad set of options, such as email reporting, time-stamping, and live data streaming.

AirDrive RS-485 Logger Module - The Max version advantage

The Max version advantage

The Max version has all the capabilities of the Pro version, enhanced with 16 GB internal memory available as a USB Hi-speed flash drive (480 Mbps). For a serial device, this essentially means unlimited data storage, accessible both remotely and locally over USB.

SerialGhost RS-485 Module - How does it work?

The SerialGhost RS-485 Module is a compact asynchronous serial logger, capable of recording RS-485 data streams from devices like printers, terminals, keyboards, mice, barcode scanners etc. Simply connect the SerialGhost in-line on an RS-485 bus. If a USB port is available, you can power the device from USB. Otherwise, use an external +9V...+24V power source. The SerialGhost will immediately start logging all data available on the bus. No software or drivers are required.

SerialGhost RS-485 Module - How does it work?

Easy access

To view the recorded data, the SerialGhost Module may be switched to flash drive mode. Connect to a computer using a USB-B cable, apply ground to input MODE, and the SerialGhost will pop up as a removable drive, containing a file with logged data. The flash drive may also be used to configure the device, such as baudrate, parity bits, start/stop bits, etc.

Multiple modes

The SerialGhost family is packed with features, such as the capability to act as a USB removable flash drive, or USB Virtual COM port. In flash drive mode, a log file is available with all acquired data. Virtual COM port mode can be used to live-stream the captured data, or to communicate with the device using a proprietary command set.

SerialGhost RS-485 Module - Date and time-stamping

Date and time-stamping

The built-in real-time clock will keep track of the time and date independent if the computer is turned on or not. This is possible thanks to the internal battery, with a guaranteed lifetime of over 10 years. Time and date stamps with millisecond granularity will get inserted in the log file while the logger is capturing data.
