Batteryless System Logger

Batteryless System Logger (RS232)

  • Provides around the clock system logging
  • Never loses log information
  • No batteries or external power needed
  • No service or maintenance needed
  • Lifetime of over 10 years

The Batteryless System Logger is a unique device that was designed to log system data from any serial port and store it in its non-volatile memory in the event of a system crash or power outage. The Logger is ideal for companies in the embedded appliance market.

The System Logger connects to the embedded system via the serial RS-232 port. It is continuously receiving log information from the system and storing log information into an internal cycle buffer. This information can be read back via the serial interface at any time.

The Logger takes power from the serial port (lines RTS and DTR) and it has no batteries or accumulators inside. This batteryless implementation means you won't require any service or maintenance during the System Logger's lifetime.

The System Logger implements the new Amfeltec Smart Batteryless Backup Technologies™ (Patent Granted). This technology guarantees that the Logger will save system log information in its non-volatile memory in the event of a system crash or power outage -- even if electrical characteristics of the System Logger are fluctuating due to humidity and temperature influences during operation. This technology greatly lengthens the lifetime of System Logger making it almost unlimited.

By using the System Logger, any embedded system (appliance) can have system log information for analysis -- even if it has no resources for storing log information (for example a hard drive or flash), and without using a secondary computer (which is usually used to capture log information in Hyper Terminal application).

In addition, the System Logger can be used as a logic analyzer. It can start and stop writing system information into the cycle buffer under application control. This mode of operation can be very helpful when it’s necessary to debug specific system conditions during development.

The System Logger has standard DB9 RS-232 connector with two screws and it can be easily connected to any RS-232 I/O port inside or outside a computer or an embedded appliance.
