Is there some docs that explain how to log data from the inverter without using the SGT-Viewer.

Maybe info like baud rate, hand shaking method, does the software have to send commands to the inverter to retrieve some data, or is there ment to be a continious data flow that can be monitored with a serial port recorder.

A friend of mine would like to try make a program for me to log the data and then use programs he has already made for logging and graphing at the Radio Station he works at. He seems to think he can do something similar to the current SGT-Viewer since many of the transmitter hardware he controls uses serial port which he can send and receive commands and data. He believes it won't be much different to what he is doing now.

I have tried a few serial port loggers and none of them pick up on any data flow, of course I can't run them while the sgt-viewer is running else i get an error that the com port is already in use.
