For easy configuration of the Gill WindSonic and Gill GMX (MaxiMet) range of sensors. This RS232 configuration cable enables communication from sensor to PC via HyperTerminal Windows (or another terminal emulation package). The RS232 configuration cable provides a connection between the sensor and the serial port of a PC. The power lead is provided with a standard car cigarette lighter socket adapter.
The Gill Configuration Cable enables easy configuration of a Gill WindSonic and Gill GMX (MaxiMet) sensor using RS232 connection to a computer PC serial port. Power is supplied by a standard car cigarette lighter socket adapter*
*Note that the plug is supplied separately and must be wired to suit the version of Gill WindSonic or Gill MaxiMet sensor to be configured. This is due to the supply voltage connections for WindSonic Options 2 and 3 being reversed compared to the Option 1 unit. Damage will not occur from a reverse voltage connection.
|Gill WindSonic Option 1 & Gill GMX (MaxiMet) Sensors|
Connect to a PC either directly to an RS232 serial port, or via a
serial to USB converter. The sensor may be configured using a terminal
emulation package such as HyperTerminal Windows. Set to a baud
rate of 9600.
|Gill WindSonic Option 2 or 3|
Connect to a PC RS232 serial port, or via a serial to USB converter,
as per Option 1 but with the baud rate set to 19200. To communicate
using RS232 (rather than the default RS422) the unit must be in
Safe Mode. To enable Safe Mode apply power to the Gill WindSonic
and immediately hold down the * character (shift 8). After
approximately 3 seconds the unit will respond with Safe Mode.
For more details on configuration, please refer to the Gill Instruments WindSonic or Gill GMX (MaxiMet user manuals.
