TConnector: Data Acquisition ActiveX® Control

TConnector is a programmable ActiveX Control for data acquisition through RS232, Bluetooth, USB (Virtual COM) and network (TCP/IP) interfaces.

Important note: The software development for the product TConnector has stopped. Updates, bugfixes and priority support are no longer available. Nevertheless, TConnector licenses can be purchased without the entitlement to support.

Programmable Software Component for Data Acquisition

  • Are you searching for a software tool to communicate with a specific device?
  • You want to read data from all common interfaces but without being an interface specialist?
  • Not only serial and parallel ports but also TCP/IP is on your wish list?
  • You need data acquisition capabilities within Microsoft Internet Explorer and/or within Microsoft Win 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 10?
  • Your application doesn't offer a proper API for connecting to interfaces - or the API is unwieldy to handle? And you prefer one unified API for all supported interfaces?
  • Both modes for data transfer, synchronous and asynchronous, should be supported? And key stroke simulation for incoming data (software wedge mode) wouldn't be bad, too?
  • Then you should try TConnector, our Microsoft® ActiveX® compliant software for data acquisition!

Quick and Easy Data Acquisition

  1. Download TConnector (ActiveX® Control for Data Acquisition) from our Download Area and start up the setup routine.
  2. Insert TConnector into your application (e.g. Visual Basic, MS Excel, Access...), in most cases, simply by using the toolbox.
  3. Open the properties dialog (right-click TConnector symbol) and adjust the interface (e.g. COM1)
  4. Read and write data from your application with Read() and Write(). Sample code is included in the setup.

V2.4.5

Bug Fixes
  • Crash in Read()
    TCON-4684: Intermittent crash in Read() method of TConnector

V2.4.4

Enhancements
  • TCP Keep-Alive
    In previous versions a lost TCP connection could not be detected in a reasonable time. The reason was because the system default keep-alive time for TCP connections is 2 hours. Now the time interval can be specified by the user in the Service property with the following syntax: service#keepalivetime (milliseconds). The value applies to the current Winsock instance only.
Bug Fixes
  • Multi-Threading Problem
    StopListen influences all instances of TConnector.
  • BT/TCP Reconnect
    Reconnect does not work correctly when a BT/TCP connection was lost.
