Dear Reader,

A bunch of questions has to be answered before you start your measurement campaign. An important question about the data logger is the one about the options for data retrieval. This also includes which kind of data and statistics are available. We think that it is up to the user to decide in which way the data and also which kind of data shall be transmitted. And all this as user-friendly as possible. Seems to be complicated, but it isn't :-)

We designed our Meteo-40 data logger to be as flexible as possible. Hence, you can choose your most convenient method, e.g., for data transmission and data logger access. Do you know all options for data retrieval? Which one do you prefer?

After configuring content and frequency of the statistics on your Meteo-40 data logger, you decide in which way you want to receive the measurement data. Meteo-40 offers the following options as shown above:

  • Download via Meteo-40 web interface
  • Download to preconfigured USB flash drive
  • E-mail
  • Upload to your server via FTP, SCP or SFTP
  • Upload to your AmmonitOR account
  • Data retrieval from your SCADA server via Modbus RTU or Modbus TCP/IP

Once configured, Meteo-40 performs the file transfer to the server or via e-mail automatically according to the time and frequency entered in the schedule of the Meteo-40 web interface. Hence, you conveniently receive statistics while your Meteo-40 measurement system is working independently somewhere in the world.

Do you miss any option for data retrieval? Let us know.


For some reasons it might be an option to download measurement data directly from the Meteo-40 data logger to a USB flash drive, e.g., when the measurement system is close to your location or regular maintenance work is scheduled. To do so, you only have to connect the USB flash drive to your Meteo-40 and the download starts automatically. In order to prevent unauthorized data downloads, you have to configure the USB flash drive in advance.

Anyway, you always have the option to download statistics via the Meteo-40 web interface. You can conveniently access the Meteo-40 web interface when the data logger is within your network (LAN), you are connected point-to-point or via WiFi or your data logger is online in the field (access via tunnel server).

By downloading data via the Meteo-40 web interface you can even choose to download original 1-sec measurement data (source data) for selected periods.

Receive files regularly or actively download required files. It's up to you to select your preferred option.

Meteo-40 does not only offer different options for data retrieval, you can also choose from a number of statistics, e.g.:

  • Statistic files
  • Secondary statistic files (if you require further statistics with another configuration)
  • Tertiary statistic files (if two separate statics are not enough)
  • Gust statistic files
  • Source data (original 1-sec data in form of electrical values and/or evaluated data)

Each statistic file, also secondary and tertiary, can be configured user-friendly in the Meteo-40 web interface, e.g., selectable evaluations, statistics interval and file frequency. You can configure Meteo-40 to send or upload statistics just by ticking checkboxes for the files types, which you require. Due to the size of source data files there is only the option for download.

A bunch of different files for you and your colleagues, various purposes and a number of options for data retrieval - this is Meteo-40! Flexible and convenient.


If you want to learn more about available statistics and data on your Meteo-40 and how you can get the data, please have a look in the Meteo-40 manual, which is accessible via the Meteo-40 web interface or visit our website.
