  • Bubblehead, Which engine monitor are you using? I'm trying to do the same thing using a Grand Rapids Technologies EIS unit to output serial data. Like you the CONFIG.TXT and log files are created, but the logged data is unusable. Works fine connecting the EIS to a FireFly Serial/Bluetooth converter and recording data with a Laptop and HyperTerminal. I've contacted GRT to see what level the serial data is transmitted (12V, 5V, 3.3V, etc). If it's 5V or 3.3V, I'm not sure what's up.
    UPDATE: I got word back that the output can be as high as 12V on the serial output of the Engine Monitor (EIS). Yesterday I used the Sparkfun SMD Level Shifter board between the OpenLog and Engine Monitor and it worked GREAT! I got NO errors in recording over 30 minutes. Worked like a champ! No more lugging a PC to the airport to log engine data! woo hoo!!!

No public wish lists :(
