From Enoki Sensor:
Slip21 records measurements and shows the listing and the trend chart at real-time. It generates a HTM table of the latest list to arbitrary address. One can watch the HTM result by browser through WAN or LAN. It shows the latest at first. Slip21 updates measurements that combines outputs of wireless module XBee, MCU (Micro Computer Unit) or DSO (Digital Storage Oscilloscope) by exact PC clock at a sampling period. Slip21 can switch draw a chart of temperature or volt.
I confirmed two different semiconductor sensors for my motherboard of MCU H8/3664F and 3694F. One is assembled with amplified interface circuit for ADC input. Another is with 2-wire remote interface circuit. Although Tektronix TDS310 shows Math on the CRT, it does not send the result. We often estimate current by measuring the both end of voltage across a resistor. Slip21 compute the voltage difference and divide by constant number. So user can get the current value.
Slip21 supports to get Digi International wireless XBee End Device sampling data from XBee Coordinator connected to USB or RS232 port. XBee has cyclic period mode for End Device. The mode sends burst packets in a fixed period. The burst is sampled by short IO sampling period. Slip21 always waits the burst. Slip21 edits the binary API packets and shows them by hex decimal expression. Slip21 computes averaging ADC among 1-4 packets. The averaging process is useful for measuring temperature by semiconductor sensor, because the semiconductor sensor includes random noise.
Slip21 works for Windows XP later. Slip21 needs .NET Framework 4 or later. You can download it from Microsoft. If your PC is Windows XP, select Framework 4. Although Microsoft announces that Framework 4 needs 1GHz 512MB, I could install it 400MHz 384MB PC. And the PC works Slip21 all day long.
What's new in this version:
- Available to get 3 measurements of XBee
- Monitors XBee battery voltage
- Displays daily averaging real-time temperatures or shows desired past ones
- Only one recording button compared with previou three buttons
- Decreased XBee API 4 packets enough to measure temperatures
- Includes for writing MCU H8/3694F flash program
- Easier to set up alarm temperatures than before
- Bug fixed rarely duplicate recording of...
