HyperWare-II™ (HW-II) is a powerful multi-purpose software package for use with the new Logic Beach Network Enabled IntelliLogger and IL-Mini data logger series. HyperWare-II™ is the next generation icon-based
data logging software built upon the original industry-preferred
HyperWare program and contains all the functions required for configuration
and use of the IntelliLogger. With HW-II you can graphically build
data logging programs, view real-time data, build custom web pages,
and much more. With completely rewritten code and updated, revised,
and improved program functionality, you will be amazed at the versatility
Network features (FTP, Email, Web browser access, etc) available in HyperWare-II and described on this page are ONLY applicable to the IntelliLogger Network Enabled instruments (IL-10, 20, 80, and 90). The IntelliLogger-Mini instruments are not network enabled, hence these network features are not available in the IL-Mini instrument family. Upon connection to an IntelliLogger or IntelliLogger IL-Mini instrument, HyperWare-II automatically detects the available capability of the connected instrument and makes the appropriate features available to the user.
HyperWare-II is provided FREE with the network enabled IntelliLogger instruments and for a nominal charge for the IL-Mini™ family (Note 1).
| Since the IntelliLogger is a network device
it is capable of serving web pages for viewing over the Internet.
Standard web pages are built into the IntelliLogger and custom
web pages are also possible. Custom web pages are easily created
in HW II graphically with drop and drag objects allowing for a
great deal of customization for each application.
HW-II simply and graphically provides
the following features:
- Communications between a PC and any IntelliLogger
- Drag and Drop Icon-Based Datalogger Programming
- Custom Web Page creation via the Designer
- Develop Simple to Complex Logging Schemes
- Remote Control of Loggers via any Communication
- RS-232, Modem, Cell-Phone, Ethernet, RF-Modem
- Real-Time Data Monitoring and Trending
- Emails sent with data and alarms
- Automatic data ftp capabilities
HyperWare II supports RS-232, USB, telephone
modem (cellular and land line), Ethernet, and spread spectrum radio
communication options. Once a communication link is established
the following functions are available.
- Collected data downloads
- Logger current status checks
- Reprogramming of the logger
- Real-time trending of data on the PC while
the logger executes
- Remote control of the logger outputs
- "On-the-Fly" control of special
icons, remote constant and analog switch
A communication link is established by double
clicking on the Communications Icon between the PC and Data Logger.
A dialog box pops ups listing available
loggers and communications options.
Once the connection is established, merely dragging
and dropping icons between the PC and the Logger results in transparent
communications with `behind the scenes' error checking. The visual
communications implementation allows for quick and simple communications
between the PC and a connected IntelliLogger™ for Status ,
collected data downloads, programming, and remote control.
The IntelliLogger is fully programmable for intelligent
data logging strategies, alarming, conditional logging, inter-channel
calculations, log to memory on change, statistical calculations
and much more. In the early 1990s Logic Beach developed a revolutionary
and unique graphical programming method for our instruments called
HyperNet™. This programming method has been refined and improved
to produce one of the easiest and most powerful programming environments
for portable data logging and alarming instrumentation.
Programming the IntelliLogger is a simple
1. Connect to the data logger with the desired
2. Query the logger for its hardware configuration
3. Visually create the logger "NET" program and Custom
Web Page (if desired)
4. Transfer the NET program to the Logger's memory
Within the programming window, a `NET' program
is developed graphically on the PC using icons and interconnects,
creating a network of icons on the screen. Transfer the program
NET to the data logger.
Once the program NET containing the optional
Custom Web Page is loaded into the data logger you may turn the
logger off and finish the system installation. Turn the logger
ON, depress Enable, and the logger will begin collecting data
and serving and be immediately available to serve web pages.
Real-time Data Monitoring and Web Pages
HW-II™ allows the user to view data in
a variety of manners. Choose to view data real-time with HyperWare-II
or through the built-in web pages or custom created web pages through
the Internet or a network connection. These pages can be
identical to the HyperWare-II realtime pages for consistent data
custom web pages via drop and drag objects.
HyperWare-II™ makes custom web page creation extremely
simple. Simply select from the palette of 23 graphic objects,
drop and place them on your web page. Customize the objects
for your application, resize, change colors, rescale, add alarms,
insert images, all easily accomplished within HW-II. You may create
a number of web pages which are then up loaded to the data logger
for viewing by anyone with data logger access.
A few of the objects available include thermometers,
angular gages, tanks (level), digital displays, counters and more. These
objects can be used for both the custom web pages and real-time
trending via HyperWare-II. Logic Beach has created it's own
Web Browser, GreenWater (TM)
available free here, which speeds
data presentation by preloading the graphic objects to your PC
and just downloaded object type, place and value from the data
logger being viewed.

to demo unit.
By way of the Remote Constant and Remote Control icons, Users can
now change a running program's operation in the logger via a communication
link from their PC! From within either the real-time tracking window
or the standard web page's set-point parameters can be adjusted
and outputs or logic within a program can be changed, all while
the logger is executing its program.
Data Output Formats
A number of data formats are available from the
IntelliLogger, CSV, tab delineated, space justified (txt) and raw
data. The CSV file is easily imported into many standard spreadsheet
and plotting programs for further analysis while the other text
formats are easily viewed in any text editor.
