I'd like to download history from an EMF-390 in an automated setup. Is it possible to run it in batch with command line switches? Is the source code available?

Hi sc, you can use the <SPIR>> command (http://www.gqelectronicsllc.com/download/GQ-RFC1701.txt).
Here is the format for the date. Date always starts with 0x55 0xAA.

time[0] = 0x55;
time[1] = 0xAA;
time[2] = Year; //20xx
time[3] = Month //01-12
time[4] = Day
time[5] = Hour
time[6] = Minute
time[7] = Second

and here's a format for the data

data[0] = 0xAA;
data[1] = 0X55;
data[2] = (temp >> 8) & 0xFF; //EMF is 16 bits the first 12 MSB are for the integer part of EMF
data[3] = temp & 0xFF; // then the 4LSB are for the decimal part. e.g 1.1 ==> 0000000000010001
// EF - bits of float type
data[4] = EF[0];
data[5] = EF[1];
data[6] = EF[2];
data[7] = EF[3];
// RF same as EF
data = RF[0];
data[9] = RF[1];
data[10] = RF[2];
data[11] = RF[3];

How do you know when the data is completed? (vg. no more data to transmit).

You can specify the number of data to be transmitted with the > command. But most of the commands are fast so you can just delay and wait a little bit.

Yes, I understand that you specify the amount of data in the command. But when do you stop?

I assume that to retrieve the data, you go into a loop. For example:

<SPIR0000001000>> (get '1000' bytes at address '000000')
<SPIR0010001000>> (get '1000' bytes at address '001000')
<SPIR0020001000>> (get '1000' bytes at address '002000')
etc.

How do you know in advance how much data there is to get? When do you stop the loop?

You can send the first command to get 1000 bytes of data, then receive the data (check if it's 1000), if not then continue receiving.
If the data is 1000, then stop. But after sometime, let's say 500ms or 1 second, if the data is still < 1000, then data is maybe corrupted so you can discard the data and repeat the command.
