A serial cable must be properly connected between the PC and the data logger. For example, some data loggers have two types of ports, and it is important to use the correct cabling for the one you are connected to. On Campbell Scientific data loggers, there are two types of 9-pin connectors: CS I/O and RS-232. With RS-232, you can either connect a straight-through cable between the RS-232 port on the PC and the RS-232 port on the data logger, or you can use a USB to RS-232 cable. If you are connecting to a CS I/O port, you must also use an RS-232 to CS I/O converter, such as the SC32B Optically Isolated RS-232 Interface.
Many modern devices require some pieces of unique information. Flasher ARM allows the programming of data that differs amongst other otherwise identical units. Typical examples are things like serial numbers, ethernet hardware addresses (MAC), and digital signatures, and license keys that enable/disable product features. All these options can be adapted from device to device by applying patch data to the original firmware. 2b1af7f3a8
