Hydro-Com Software for Sensor Calibration and Configuration
Hydro-Com Software for sensor calibration and configuration allows the Hydronix range of moisture sensors to be easily configured by the user using a PC. The software may also be used for diagnostic purposes and upgrading sensor firmware.
A unique advantage of Hydronix sensors is the identical setup and configuration of each sensor when it leaves our factory. This means that is quick and easy to calibrate multiple sensors (or a replacement sensor) using Hydro-Com over an RS485 network or simply with a PC and USB or Ethernet connection.
The sensor is connected to either our USB Sensor Interface Module, an Ethernet Adapter or an RS232 Adapter. This is then connected to a laptop allowing configuration, calibration, diagnostics and upgrades to be easily completed.
By installing the software onto a PC most of the configuration settings, flexibility and functionality of Hydronix sensors can be demonstrated without the need to connect to Hydro-Com can be downloaded free of chargefrom our software page in the Downloads section. We would also recommend that you download the User Guide at the same time. The user guide is available in many languages and provides information about the software as well as broader information regarding moisture measurement and calibration.
Hydro-Com can also be used to backup and restore sensor settings and to create a database of material calibrations for use with the sensor.
Hydro-Com is designed to run on PC compatible machines running Microsoft Windows 8, 7 (32 & 64 bit), Windows XP and Windows 2000. For customers operating with Windows 98SE/ME this can still be supported using an older version of Hydro-Com, please contact our technical support team for further details.
At part of a continuing development programme and to ensure that our customers can continue to receive the maximum benefit from their sensors, Hydronix has developed the Hydro-Com Firmware Upgrade utility. This allows customers to use Hydro-Com to upgrade their sensors at no extra cost. The firmware file contains the latest versions of firmware for all Hydronix sensors and will automatically detect the sensor that is being upgraded. This file can be downloaded from our software page.
