(suitable for use on Win10 tablets)
this is a replacement for the original K145TMstd and VK011TMLite
This application is designed to monitor and display temperature information from the
DIY/Kitsrus K145 Temperature Data Logger kit
and from the QKits VK011 Serial Temperature Sensor Interface kit
Both are 4 – channel units, using DS18S20 one-wire temperature sensors. Connection to the pc is through the serial port.
- 4 channels of temperature display and recording
- Thermometer screen
- Plot screen
- Logging screen
- Config screen
- Displays Min/Max values for each channel
- User definable colors for each channel for Thermometers and Plotter
- Option to define "friendly" names for each channel
- Option to configure calibration offsets for sensor readings
- Select Deg C or Deg F, in software
(** the K145 must be jumpered for Deg C, and left on that setting)
- Adjustable temperature display scales for thermometers and plotter

v. 2.2.1 (XE2-T04)
- fixed bug in popup menu, where keyboard shortcuts were cut off
- visual changes/adjustments to enhance operation
on a small (eg: 7") Win10 tablet.
- tablet should be set to Desktop mode (Tablet mode = OFF).
- works ok in Landscape or Portrait, with Taskbar at bottom
- no changes to functionality.
- Help file not updated.
v. 2.1.2 (XE2-11)
- Revisions to plotting...
- added "Weeks" as a plot interval
- added runtime adjustment for line thickness
(default is "1", can now make "2" if desired)
- a captured Plot image now includes the Start
date/time, as well as the End date/time.
- Removed the "Minimize" button from sub forms. The
application should be minimized or not, as a whole.
v. 2.0.3 (XE2-09)

are now asked: "are you sure?"
v. 2.0.2 (XE2-08)

- Log AutoSave function modified...
The Log is now saved to file hourly, with 2 options:
- one continuous log file, or
- break the log into separate files every 24hr
The "continuous" Log continues to grow in memory,
as data is added. Breaking the Log means only small
chunks are maintained in memory. This may improve
program performance for long-term monitoring sessions.
- Revised K145TMstd to work with K145 and VK01, and
- Log, Plot, Thermometer, etc functions separated out to
- New Plot engine, revised how plot interval works
- Made Log and Plot windows resizable
- Revised Config window

v. 1.0.1 (02)

- Help file updated to reflect program name change
a. This version (TMstd) is freeware.
b. Read about the DS18S20 1-wire Temperature Sensor here.
c. The original developer of the K145 firmware (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.
