Hello.

For some reason, the native program «Battery Tester» writes data randomly (log recording discreteness).
Here is an example log when setting the write rate to 0.5 times per second. Those. recorded at 4 to 6 points per second.
And it is impossible then on the chart to correlate the time on the chart.

For example, to record 1 time per second, you need to set 2 seconds.
But that's not all.
600 recorded points will not equal 10 minutes.

Maybe it is necessary to install not a bridge (marked)? And another option from the proposed drivers? To ensure that the data is recorded correctly.

What is the problem anyway: in the program or in the COM port?


P.S.: The plotting of curves and logging only occurs up to 6000 points, while the data continues to be recorded.

If you want something that's more geared towards workflow automation I wrote a simple python script that interprets the RC3563 protocol and prints it out in human readable form.
Hello.
Can you create an *.ini file to make the RC3563 work with LogView?



Or what program can record a normal / correct temporary log?

I checked this tool and it's Open Format .ini files but unfortunately I don't think this is possible. The Open Format expects that a device will produce data packets where all measurement values ("channels") are ASCII decimal encoded fields separated with semicolons. This is not the case with the RC3563 as the data stream is binary encoded and has no separators.

Now I have my own RC3563 tester!

I'm opening a new GIThub wiki page for the RC3563 to gather all the information.
The whole thing should start with a reasonable manual (language change) and include software/hardware/accessories.
I look forward to support, a first question was asked in the FAQ section.


greetings from Munich

PS.: Of course, this shouldn't disturb your forum!

Driver don't use

The correct link:

If you are running windows 10 you may need to update the USB to Serial Driver
https://www.silabs.com/products/developm...cp-drivers
Baud rate is 115200
Serial Port must be enabled on the Tester
Let me know if you need anything else.

@Wolf Did you Know this Variant of Software (V6.0)?
There is an Option to use a Barcodereader to document Cells.
And a other Version as DeskMultimeter RC3562A

I am not aware of this version/variant as I don't use their software. I use my own python script to interface with excel.
Can your script record measurements 1 time per second for an infinite amount of time?
Is it possible to change the resolution from 1 second to 10 seconds, etc.?

Did you receive my mail?
Yes, but I didn't understand. Where to get files and where to copy.
Are we talking about Battery Tester 1.0?
And do you have version 6 of this program?

@Wolf
Can you put version 6 on your Google Share with the other versions. And give the link again for BatrakofSV?

@BatrakovSV
Wolf posted a G-Drive clearance in this thread.
The files are there - I had to reduce them because of the possible file size.

Of course it reads the output of the RC3563 in real time whether you have a cell inserted or not.

You can certainly add a delay in the python script if you want.

I only have the link to your Python/excel combo in Github.
If you provide a short description I can add the code to Github. Then you can set changes as PR.
