Introduction > Where do I plug my reader in ?

The Temprecord program requires an available serial port or USB port on your computer to operate.  The serial connector for this will be on the back of your computer, along with the connectors for the display and keyboard.  It will be either a DB-9M (9-pin male) or a DB-25M (25-pin male) connector.  A 25 pin-to-9 pin converter is supplied with the Reader Interface and you should use this if your computer is only fitted with a DB-25M connector.

 

If your reader has a USB connector, you need to plug it into a SUB port.  These are normally located on the rear of desktop PCs, or on the side or rear of laptop/notebook PC's.

 

Unplugging the USB reader interface from the computer's USB port while Temprecord is running can have unpredictable effects and result in the loss of communication with the logger.  It is best to exit Temprecord before unplugging or plugging in the reader interface.

Don’t confuse the DB9-M serial port connector with the display connector.  The display connector is normally the same size as a DB-9M connector but will be a 15-pin female connector

Don’t confuse the DB25-M serial port connector with the printer connector.  The printer connector is normally the same size as a DB-25M connector but will be a 25-pin female connector.

  WARNING   The Temprecord Reader model SR2 is a Class A product. In a domestic environment this product may cause radio interference in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures.
