Co-Log/Open, Data Net's latest generation of data collection software, combines over twenty years of experience with the latest technology to enable you to create powerful data collection solutions. Co-Log/Open's ease of use hides the complexity of creating robust, real-time systems while providing a framework for data collection that can quickly evolve to meet your company's needs.

Using Microsoft's ODBC technology Co-Log/Open communicates with a variety of databases and ERP systems. In addition to native database access, Co-Log/Open can communicate directly to a variety of host platforms, including Windows©, Unix or AS/400. Additionally, through its use of TCP/IP and radio frequency (IEEE 802.11b) connectivity, Co-Log/Open enables a company to leverage its existing network and support personnel.

Co-Log/Open lets you focus on your company's unique needs instead of the intricacies of data collection hardware and software. No programming experience is required to create an exact solution that lets you enforce your business rules on the shop floor or in the warehouse. Because it is easy to use and configure, Co-Log/Open installations can be deployed rapidly and can evolve quickly and constantly, allowing for a faster return on investment.

Co-Log/Open was designed to be as easy to maintain, as it is to configure. Network diagnostics allow for control and monitoring of all devices from a single computer. Intelligent terminals reduce the load on host systems and allow for continuous operation, even in the event of network failure.

Co-Log/Open's flexibility extends to the data collection equipment it supports. Co-Log/Open communicates with data collection terminals from Datalogic, Intelligent Instrumentation, Symbol, Intermec, Compsee, and others. With Co-Log/Open you have the freedom to focus on selecting the best device for each piece of your data collection puzzle.

So if you're looking for a true data collection system Co-Log/Open is the tool you need. Download a complete one-user version here or request an on-line demonstration.
