Continuous Product Development

As many of our existing customers already know, we have an active program of development in place for AntiLog and it's related software. As an example, we have just released our AntiTermPro serial terminal application to support AntiLog and the new AntiLogPro data logger range.

You can see from the V6.0 release, we do not charge high prices for upgrades and support like many other companies do. V6.0 for example is free for all existing customers who have purchased AntiLog units. We want you to enjoy your experience with us and we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our existing customers for their very kind comments about our product.

Is there a feature you would like to see in AntiLog? Why not email your comments to us as we always seriously consider all user suggestions for inclusion in future releases.

We want AntiLog to maintain and in future improve on its world class leading performance and with your help and support, we feel confident we can achieve this. Once again, thank you for your interest in our AntiLog product range.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

"Can I send initialisation commands to my equipment during a recording session?"

Yes you can. You can for example poll equipment with a user command at a user defined rate. This is useful if you need to issue a read request to equipment such as a power meter so that you can log the output. You can configure AntiLog so that a push on the 'On' or 'Off' buttons during record also transmits independent user defined commands attached to each.

Both the 'On' and 'Off' buttons can have user commands assigned to them and there is a separate equipment polling mechanism per recording channel, each capable of transmitting selected user commands.

If you need to send just one initialisation command to your equipment at the start of a logging session, you can do this and even specify a delay from the start of the logging session to determine when this user defined command will be issued.

"I have a complex data source that has binary and ASCII embedded in it. What format does AntiLog use to record the data?"

Antilog never 'formats' incoming data. What you play back can be exactly what you recorded so there are no 'formatting issues' to contend with. In fact, if you play back the data from AntiLog, the serial data stream will look like it is coming out of the original equipment.

"I note that your AntiLog product supports two hardware serial ports but there is only one connector on the end. How can it record from two RS232 data sources at the same time?"

All AntiLog hardware (from REV C onward) can support two serial ports in hardware (referred to as the Primary and Secondary serial ports). The user can configure a unit to use the RTS/CTS lines on the port connector as the second serial port Rx/Tx lines.

AntiLog V6.0 software can indeed record and play back from the two serial ports at the same time using the two built in logging channels. You assign hardware ports to the channels with the menu system and you can even play back data in real time from both serial ports. It's just like having two single channel units in a single box. Upgrades to V6.0 are available here.
