Sessions Logging window and click the 'Printable output' radio
item. Next, we will create the file name dial_data.csv (more on the
name in a moment) by clicking the browse button, navigating to
the directory we want to use, then entering the file name as shown
in Figure 17. We could now use Pu TTY, but let’s first save all the
settings we just input so we can recall them the next time we want
to use Pu TTY.
❏ Return to the Category Session and save the session settings by
typing in a session name (I'll use mySession) in the 'Saved Sessions'
text box, then clicking the 'Save' button as shown in Figure 18.
❏ This will store the session as in Figure 19. The next time you open
Pu TTY, you'll have the option of clicking on the mySession item
and the 'Load' button to have Pu TTY load your custom settings.
❏ Now, we are ready to use Pu TTY to log a session from the
❏ In the Arduino IDE, open the Examples/Communication
❏ Compile and run the program.
❏ Open a terminal session in Pu TTY.
❏ Verify that you get output similar to that shown in Figure 20.
Lab 6: Show Graph Data on a PC
We will now send the 100 bytes of dial data that we recorded
in EEPROM to the PC using Pu TTY. Then, we will edit the
dial_data.csv log file in NotePad to remove the extraneous text that
precedes the data. Finally, we will show the data in Google Chart.
1 USB cable
Estimated time for this lab: 30 minutes
Check off when complete:
❏ On the PC, open a new instance of Pu TTY.
❏ In the Arduino, run the A101_ch12_generate_dial_EEPROM_data
❏ In Pu TTY, send the p command to the Arduino.
