Getting more out of your EC9600 Smart Battery Reader

The EC9600 handheld Smart Battery reader is a very popular Accutronics product - it allows users to easily access smart battery data by just plugging it in and toggling through the data using one of two buttons. The data is read from a two line LCD display. If you need to quickly read data from a smart battery then the EC9600 is invaluable.

What many users don't know is that the EC9600 can also be connected directly to a PC and ALL of the Smart battery data transfered to the computer at the touch of a button. All you need is a serial cable and a PC. The Hyper Terminal application on the PC does all of the hard work for you.

We have step by step instructions on our website - click here to take a look.

Once you are up and running you can quickly transfer the data and save the file for later reference. If you have any questions please feel free to drop me an email.
