This process may take a few seconds, so please wait at least 30 s to one minute to ensure that Ruskin has found the logger. When … Read More

Yes, instruments can be configured to transmit real-time using full-duplex RS-485. On RBRvirtuoso, RBRduo and RBRconcerto instruments, the logger needs to have the appropriate external battery endcap (either USB, RS-232 or RS-485) for the required external communication mode, as the wiring differs between the options. Ruskin is then used to configure the instrument with the appropriate streaming data serial option. For … Read More
