ComDebug Settings for an Advanced Energy Pinnacle 6 kW DC Power Supply

For information on what each of the settings means, see the Serial Driver Settings Overview

Windmill software lets you continually log data from Advanced Energy Pinnacle 6kW DC Power Supplies, and other instruments with an RS232 serial port, on a PC running Windows. All data is time-stamped and can be imported into Excel either during or after data collection. Our Windmill with the COMIML software is currently reduced from £145 to £50. Alternatively, subscribers to the Monitor newsletter (ISSN 1472-0221) can download free logging software: ComDebug. This lets you log data from one instrument and save it in a text file.

  1. Run the Windmill ComDebug program and enter your balance's settings.
  2. Run the Windmill DDE Panel, Logger or Chart program to save or display data from your balance.

After you have entered your configuration settings with ComDebug, you don't need to use this again and can go straight to the logging and display programs. More details on entering the configuration settings are below.
