Readout and Data Analysis

Readout is easy with BoxCar Pro.


Powerful graphing capabilities allow you to compare multiple parameters on one graph, including data from multiple loggers or successive deployments. Then use the zoom and axis-control tools to focus in on the data of interest.

  • Add new data series from stored files or drag-and-drop from one plot onto another
  • Multiple value axis on one graph, such as temperature and RH
  • View data from successive deployments on one graph to see long-term trends
  • Overlay data from different deployments, to compare month-to-month, or before-and-after
  • Focus on data of interest with powerful zoom and drag tools
  • Set axis ranges
  • Use cursor to display specific plot values
  • Display series data and details such as launch parameters and series statistics
  • Add limit lines to the graph
  • Copy and paste graphs into other Windows programs
  • Control axis, series and legend properties


The following analysis functions can be used to extract key information from logged data. These functions actually create new data series, which can be graphed or exported. These functions filter data over user-specified intervals that can be in seconds, minutes, hours or days.

  • Min, max and average values per interval
  • On/off and State logger data:
  • Run time and off time (closed time and open time) in seconds

BoxCar Pro 4.3 System Requirements

  • PC system running Windows® XP/2000/Me/98/Vista/7 32 bit only *
  • at least one available serial COM port
  • CD-ROM Drive
  • 16-bit minimum color display
  • 10MB of available disk space

* While we do not plan on updating BoxCar or BoxCar Pro, both will operate on the Microsoft Vista platform with certain limitations. Help in BoxCar® Pro does not work with Windows Vista. Microsoft has intentionally removed the help engine from Vista that is required by BoxCar Pro and many other applications, as an encouragement for software vendors to migrate their application's Help to a new Microsoft Help facility. Microsoft has indicated that they will provide a workaround in the near term - please see In any case, it will be necessary for each BoxCar Pro user to download and install this workaround when available, as Microsoft is forbidding the redistribution of the solution with third-party applications.

BoxCar Pro 4.3 is designed for single users, and has not been tested, and therefore not warranted to run in a network environment.
