Modem
Link
For connection to MiniMet
and DataHog dataloggers
24 Hour easy access to your
data, direct from your home
or office
MiniMet or DataHog can be
installed wherever there is
access to a telephone line
and mains power
Access from any country in the
world
If there is a standard telephone
line nearby your DataHog logger or
MiniMet weather station installation
site, The MODLINK Line Modem
Link can be easily utilised to give
24 hour access to your data. Even
if the telephone point is hundreds
of metres away, this can still be
cable linked into the world
telephone system.
The Skye Lynx Auto software will
automatically download the data at
regular intervals, for example,
hourly, daily, weekly etc. This is
ideal for taking advantage of lower
cost, off peak telephone calls.
Then the data is already stored on
your hard disk, ready to view,
graph and analyse any time you
wish.
All you then need is a modem in
your home or office PC, and the
data can be quickly downloaded
remotely, at any time of day or
night. You can even choose to
view the data 'live' over the modem
link.
The MODLINK line modem link
itself is mains powered - 110V or
220V. It is designed to be sited
indoors next to the telephone
point. A standard external PC type
modem is connected to the
MODLINK and plugged into the
Updated 10/10/07
telephone socket. A cable is then
run outside to the DataHog or
MiniMet logger. This single cable
has a dual purpose, it carries both
the power supply (12V) to the
logger, plus transfers data signals
to and from the logger and the
modem.
MODLINK is powered 24 hours a
day allowing access via the
telephone line at any time of day or
night. The modem is configured to
auto-answer.
