Data Access

In order to monitor the PFR status and download data, we recommend either of the following 2 methods for which internet access would be required.

  • Our PC laptop can send daily data files via ftp to our server (ftp.pmodwrc.ch). This simple solution avoids possible problems with Firewalls.

  • The Travelling Standard has a Campbell Ethernet Network card which is connected to a Campbell datalogger. If you can give us a dedicated IP address and access through your Firewall, then data can be downloaded by our data acquisition computer at WORCC on an hourly basis.
