How do I collect data from the TD-700 and use it in my computer? Do I need the data collection software?
You can use various communications software packages to transfer data from the TD-700 to your computer.  The signal is sent from the TD-700 in ASCII format.  If you have Microsoft Windows on your computer, data can be collected and stored in a file using Hyperterminal. Simply connect the 9-pin cable included with the TD-700 to the RS-232 serial port on the back panel of the instrument.  Then connect the other end of the cable to the serial communications port on the back of your computer (you may need a 9-25 pin serial adaptor to do this).  Step by step instructions on how to collect data are on page 39 of the TD-700 Operations Manual.
