Model SDI-12 - USB Translator


Quickly turn your PC into a SDI-12 compliant data logger, with the Vegetronix SDI-12 USB translator board. The translator will connect to your PC through a USB interface, and allow you to communicate with SDI-12 compliant sensors  with simple serial commands. The USB port emulates a serial port so you can use any serial port communication program such as the HyperTerminal program which is installed on all Windows platforms, to communicate with the device through a command line interface.  You can also write your own software programs to communicate with the translator board, and merely need to target a serial port.  There is no need to deal with complex USB drivers. The translator allows you to pass through SDI-12 commands, or you can set up the on-board scheduler, and it will retrieve data at specified  intervals.   The low power board is powered directly from the USB cable.
