Downloading Data from the LI-6400/XT Using a Serial Connection

Downloading Data from the LI-6400/XT Using a Serial Connection

Downloading data from the LI-6400/6400XT is a vital part of the data collection process.  If you own an LI-6400XT, you can choose one of two options: downloading data via Ethernet or using a serial (RS-232) connection.  Ethernet is faster, better for large files, and generally easier to use.  For those with a non-XT instrument, downloading options are limited to a serial connection.  This tech tip is designed to assist with some common issues that occur when trying to use a…
