DataLynx data collection software is an inexpensive data logging and storage package for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) using a PC. Any PLC or other device that supports MODBUS, along with a modem connection, works well with DataLynx. This data logging software package is an ideal solution for collecting data from remote locations or relaying data from multiple locations back to a single location to be stored.
DataLynx polls remote MODBUS-enabled devices over standard phone lines using off-the-shelf modems. The DataLynx Server runs as a service and collects and stores your data into comma or tab-delimited file formats. DataLynx can also be configured to automatically archive data files into a .zip file every month or year and delete the files as well.
