This is the final report which documents the development of Internet-based data logger polling. The project consists of two main tasks: the development of automated polling procedures that can be launched remotely with no operator input, and the development of a polling engine to launch the above procedures and pass the data on to the database server. This final report describes the automated polling procedures that have been developed for Synergistic, Highland and ABB loggers. This report also describes the universal polling engine, which, in addition to launching polling and transferring data, is able to convert ABB data into Synergistic format (the format required to load the data into the LoanSTAR Informix database). The results of testing with Synergistic, Highland and ABB loggers are also described, as well as the real-world production use with ABB power meter loggers at West Texas A&M University.
This final report presents the system design, testing results and real-world production usage of the system. The copyrighted source code of all the programs is also included.
