Data communication

Although each data file can be viewed on the display, RS-232 and USB interfaces have been provided to transfer data to a computer for analysis, storage, or printing.

Sending data to a computer

In order to transfer data to a computer, two things are needed; a communications cable (the 9975-016 RS-232 cable or 392-06652 USB cable included), and the 3000-500 software that writes the incoming data into a data file (see Support: LI-3000C Portable Leaf Area Meter).

The LI-3000C communication parameters are fixed at 38400 bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and hardware handshaking on.

Files are printed using the PRINT FILES routine which is accessed by pressing the MENU key and scrolling to the software routine.
