1. Introduction

This document describes how the data from an ANB Sensor S Series autonomous pH sensor is removed from the sensor after deployment.

2. Data Retrieval

THE SENSOR SHOULD NOT BE COLLECTING DATA WHEN CONNECTED TO THE DATA RETRIEVAL UNIT

  1. Install Tera Term before using the S1100 https://osdn.net/projects/ttssh2/releases/
  2. Plug the Data Retrieval Unit (DRU) into the USB port of a computer ensuring the S1100 is disconnected from the DRU
  3. Launch Tera Term
  4. On Set-up menu select serial port from the drop down. In the resulting window select the correct comm port.
  5. Select speed = 115200, Data = 8bit, Parity = none, Stop bits = 1, flow control = none. Click OK
  6. On Set-up menu select terminal and new line options in resulting window should be Receive = Auto and Transmit = CR.
  7. Ensuring the sensor is dry and disconnected from power, plug the DRU connector to the subconn connector on the S1100.
  8. Wait for the system to beep once and then within 10secs press the Enter key repeatedly until the sensor responds with three beeps.
  9. The Tera Term screen will show software version numbers, sensor serial number and current sensor time.
  10. Set Tera Term to save data to a log file. On Tera Term Select File>>log>>[(enter filename of choice).csv] and browse to location you wish to save the file. Ensure timestamp is deselected and click Save.
  11. Press “Ctrl” + “p” and then “Enter” to download the data from the S1100. This will download all pH files since last download.
  12. On Tera Term Select File >> ShowLog Dialog and click close
