wondering whether or not the jr can send email alarms if left connected to a pc.

i know the full version of the software is necessary and that the ethernet ported controllers can, but can the jr?

thanks

It is possible to send email alarms with the Jr. You need the following to do so:

ACJr with the serial option (ACJR + -SER)
Serial Cable (part # SERPC9)
Full version of AquaNotes (part # NOTES3)

Of course your PC will need an internet connection as well.

You could use a dial-up internet connection for email. Windows would have to be configured so that it would automatically dial and connect to your ISP when an internet access is requested.

last thing,

is there a connection length limit? due to loss of signal?

or only limited by the length of cable?

i do not have serial connection on my pc. can the serial cable be easily connected to usb with an adapter without causing any issues?

thanks

The maximum length on the serial cable is about 100 feet. If you don't have a serial port, then you will need a USB to serial (RS232) adapter. I personally use the one made by iogear.com, and it works well.
