is an advanced version of the K145TMLite software
for the DIY/Kitsrus K145 “Temperature Data
Logger” board. While it offers a data
monitoring and recording function, it uses a different paradigm from the Lite version.
Here, data is recorded immediately into a database file, as it’s processed,
reducing the risk of data loss. As well,
plotting is moved into a separate “Viewer” utility, which allows data viewing in
offline mode. The Viewer can also connect
to a live logging session, which allows plot views of current data.
- 4 channels of temperature monitoring
- 2 applications
A. Logger, to connect to the K145 and do the actual

v. 1.2.1 (29)
- added option to add fixed offset values to temperature readings.
Offset values can be in the range of +/- 15 deg. in 0.1 deg. steps.
Offsets can also be adjusted (for fine-tuning) while connected,
however this should be done only in the first few minutes of a
monitoring session. Otherwise it will be difficult to interpret readings.
- added option to limit recording of intermittent extreme temperature
values. The extreme values can be greatly minimized by using a
capacitor across the power connections at the sensor (see the
108Relays website for more info). This software-based limiting
function should be used as a last resort.
How it works: if an extreme value arrives (greater than the specified
limit), then the previous value is used instead.
- Popup Menu...
- added option to adjust height of Menu items.
- added option to display a "Menu" button onscreen
These options are for those using the program on a touchscreen.
v. 1.2.2 (41)
- added a couple more options to the Search function.
Now includes: "Like", ">=", and "<="
- K145TMPro has been successfully tested on Win7/64
- Help file not updated
v. 1.1 (24)
- fix for how LogViewer plot engine handles temperature channel dropouts.
The plotter will now use the last known good temperature value
if it encounters a dropout in the data.
- no updates to the Logger program.
- no updates to the Help file.
v. 1.0.1 First release

c. The original developer of the K145 (Quozl) has a project
d. If you're unsure about the usability of your serial port,
you might want to try connecting
with the K145
Tester, or HyperTerminal. If you
can connect, and the data is not corrupted
in the display, then your port should be OK.
If you're not familiar with HyperTerminal,
there's a tutorial here.
