CamEra Posted February 18, 2009 Share Posted February 18, 2009 Hi, I would like to connect an instrument that use SDI-12 commands to DaqFactory. I have not seen any mention of this in the documentation or this forum. SDI-12 instruments operate similar to RS-485 with all being piggy backed together and each having a unique address. The system (DaqFactory) needs to send a command which is addressed to just one SDI-12 instrument. That instrument responds advising the delay (warmup period) before data is sent and the number of values which will be sent. The values are then sent once the delay has expired. There are a lot of other commands as well but this is the simplest form of the command to get data. This all occurs at 1200 baud. This type of communication is used extensively with data loggers. Can you help. George Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
