Bluetooth / data logging

CurrentRanger has a serial header that will output serial data in the following format when a serial device is detected (detection is done during power-ON):

123E-x – followed by newline, where x is the range (3=mA, 6=uA, 9=nA). Example: 2345E-3 is scientific notation for 2345mA.

The HC-06 Bluetooth module is recommended since it’s well supported and easy to use. It usually comes set to 19200/115200 baud. The default CurrentRanger firmware serial header baud is set to 230400, so you need to match this baud in the HC-06 module using the AT command set (by issuing the AT+BAUD9 command), see this link for more details.
