Example 1: Configure I-7000 module with EZ Data Logger.
We would be using I-7016 module in our example.
Please check the following things before Step 1:
1. Power ON the I-7000 module
2. Find the COM port number of the PC where the I-7000 module is
connected.
3. Make a note of COM port, Address, BaudRate, Checksum for the I-7000
module.
Step 1: Install a DCON driver on a specific COM port
ICP DAS USA, Inc. www.icpdas-usa.com, 1-310-517-9888
1508 West Pacific Coast Highway, Harbor City, CA 90710
Click on “Group Setup” and click ”Install” under the Driver List on the “Workgroup
Settings” window.
Enter the following information correctly.
- Driver Mode: “DCON”
- COM Port as “what applies to your setup”
- Note: In our example we have I-7016 connected to the COM 4 of our PC,
hence we select COM4.
- BaudRate and Checksum “This information can be found from DCON
Utility”. The factory default is 9600 and Disable for all I-7000 modules.
- Click Install
If the driver is installed correctly then it would show up in the ”Driver list” as below.

Step 2: Add a device (I-7000 module)
- Select the Driver “DCON COM4” from the “Driver List” and click “Modify”
- Click “+Device”
-
On the Device window “DCON COM4” is selected automatically. This also
indicates the DCON driver is correctly installed.
Select the “Module” name from the drop down menu list.
Enter a “Nickname” eg: i7016
Enter the Address of the I-7000 module (found from DCON Utility).
Click “Add”

Also make sure all the AI, AO, DI and DO channels are present in the “Channel
list”. The number and type of channels depends on the type of module used.
In our example I-7016 has 2-AI, 1-AO, 1-DI and 4-DO channels.
In the above figure the “AI List” tab under Channel List is selected. Hence we see
the two AI channels listed below.
Step 3: Add the Channel to be monitored
- Select the channel that needs to be added to the monitoring list.
- Click on “Add”
The “i7016_AI_0” gets added to the “AI channels” on the right side on the window.
