Pushing Data via FTP Using the Delphin Expert Logger

Send Data Directly to Your Office PC!

FTPFile Transfer Protocol–is a widely-used network protocol for file transfer and managing of directories. For example it’s often used to create, delete, and share files. In this latest Tech Article from CAS DataLoggers we detail how you can use a Delphin Expert Logger to configure a data transfer via FTP to the Cloud or to another server within the network.


FTP Push With the Expert Logger:

Step 1: Create a ‘Drive’ in the Delphin DataService Configurator.


Step 2: Configure the ‘Drive’ in the configurations dialog.


Please note that you must select the Drive ‘Network’.

For this setting, it is essential that you enter a network address and a path.

Step 3: Reference ‘DriveFTP_Test’ with an already-existing storage group within the device.


Step 4: Import the saved data on the FTP server in a readable format.

You need to convert the saved file from a raw to a readable format (e.g.”*.hds” or “*.csv”). An ‘*.ExternalDatastorage-xml’ file will be located at the saved path. You can perform the conversion using the ‘Data converter’ program. This program is supplied as a standard program within ProfiSignal.
